Academic points

One couple who have not yet visited the Royal Academy summer show are the parents of Nick Eldridge.

This is a pity as Eldridge Smerin was commended in the awards for a model of the audacious reworking of a house in Kent.

Faced with the intransigence of planners who insisted that the extension must be connected to the house, Eldridge decided to put it on the roof. His parents, who are the clients for the project, have not seen any visual material. 'I have described it to them in words, ' said Eldridge, slightly nervously.

Meanwhile, thanks to Julia Barfield for pointing out just how rude were the goings-on in the bedrooms of Will Alsop's model for a Bavarian house, making this possibly the most outrageous project in the entire show.
