Five things to do today: 28 October

Copper sulphate - Monty Python - World Architecture Festival - design in Bristol - Chelsea Barracks

PLAN your visit to the extraordinary Seizure (opening has been extended until 30 November, 11am-5pm, Thursday-Sunday). Artist Roger Hiorns pumped 75,000 litres of copper sulphate solution into 157 Harper Road, a council flat near Elephant & Castle, to create a beautiful yet menacing blue crystalline growth throughout. Wellies and gloves are provided.

WATCH the architects sketch from Month Python. John Cleese (pictured) and Eric Idle pitch two seriously deficient housing projects.

RELIVE the inaugural World Architecture Festival in Barcelona at the weekend. The official website has all you need to know about the first World Building of the Year: Grafton Architects’ new faculty building for the Luigi Bocconi University in Milan.

VISIT On Purpose: Design Concepts, an exhibition of 'interventions and work' by a selection of intriguing designers including Daniel Eatock and Droog Design. Arnolfini Gallery, 16 Narrow Quay, Bristol BS1 4QA.

JOIN the bandwagon of opposition to the Chelsea Barracks development. Britain's richest family, the Mittals, are understood to have come out against the multi-billion pound plan to build more than 600 houses, a hotel and a sports complex.
