Marrying a neo-Georgian 'National Lottery Winners' Finishing School' with an upmarket dogs' home converted from a 1960s office block scarcely sounds outlandish in these days of mix and match, but it is a relief to learn that it is only a project by Royal College of Art student Dominic McKenzie. Viewers of bbc Two's forthcoming six-part documentary series on the rca will see McKenzie and fellow student Bruce Peter putting forward their proposals in episode four, entitled 'Serious Fun'. Professor of architectural design Nigel Coates says he wants his students 'to be able to carry on that youthful spirit . . . to think creatively and throw out preconceptions' but the programme shows the duo brought to earth by their fellow students asking, 'would anyone want to build it?'
