The AJ is giving away 12 pairs of invitations to a sneak preview of Zaha Hadid's most recent project - a dramatic tensile fabric commissioned by the Serpentine Gallery as the venue for its 30th anniversary celebrations.

On 19 June the Serpentine Gallery and The Architects' Journal are christening the project with a lunch-time drinks party to give leading figures from the worlds of art and architecture a chance to visit and to hear Hadid talk about her work. To win two tickets to the event, send a postcard with your name and address to Serpentine Offer, The Architects' Journal , 151 Rosebery Avenue, London EC1R 4GB, or fax us on 020 7505 6701 by Monday 12 June.

Readers are also invited to place bids for the opportunity to spend a week in two of the US'most outstanding examples of twentieth-century architecture - Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House in Illinois and Frank Lloyd Wright's Kentuck Knob in Pennsylvania. The holiday, which has been donated by Lord and Lady Palumbo, is one of many unusual lots in an auction being held at the dinner in aid of the Serpentine Gallery and the United Kingdom Children's Cancer Study Group. Zaha Hadid has donated a watercolour depicting her original vision for the Serpentine commission. Other lots include a portfolio of 17 works by some of Britain's most distinguished artists, including Howard Hodgkin, Antony Gormley and Rachel Whiteread, a spotted Mini by Damien Hirst, and 2kg of Beluga caviar. For a complete list of items for auction, or to place a bid on any of the lots mentioned here, contact Clare Oliver on 020 7298 1519.
