The first floor of London's Whitechapel Gallery is full of architectural models on chipboard tables by the German artist Thomas Schutte - reductive proposals for houses and studios, more rudimentary than precious in their execution. On the ground floor are grotesque sculpted figures, miniature (in plasticine) and giant (in cast aluminium). Schutte also shows lyrical, if melancholy, watercolours of flowers and fruit. Anyone provoked to find out how these disparate practices are connected should read the latest in Phaidon Press' excellent monographs on contemporary artists, Thomas Schutte (£19.95). The show continues until 15 March (0171 522 7878).
