The Barbican Art Gallery has a few belting exhibitions up its sleeve. You didn't know? Well open your diary, sharpen your pencil and let the ever-nosey Astragal tell you all about them. The first one to scribble on the calendar is a new Alvar Aalto show. The exhibition itself, which will fill the gallery in the heart of the 1960s central London icon from February 22 next year, will be designed by the 'Origami Emperor', Japanese architect Shigeru Ban.

Another show to keep an eye out for is the RIBA's highprofile Le Corbusier exhibition.

Apparently, top secret discussions are currently under way with the Barbican to bring the Vitra-produced show to London after it finishes in Liverpool in 2008. Remember, only use a pencil.
