  • Three members of staff from the UCL Bartlett School of Architecture have their work on display at the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition.

    Professor of Architecture and Cultural Design CJ Lim, who is UCL Pro-Provost for Canada, Mexico and the USA, makes a fifth consecutive appearance at the world's largest open-submission contemporary art exhibition.

    Professor Lim's contribution is called The Bunny Club - a project for a site in Queen Mary's Garden, Regent's Park, that takes Hugh Hefner's Playboy Mansion as its inspiration.

    Professor Lim is joined at this year's exhibition by UCL Bartlett postgraduate and tutor Kyle Buchanan, and Bob Sheil from sixteen*(makers), an architectural consultancy founded at the school.

    The exhibition displays a wide range of new work by both established and unknown artists in all media including painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture and architecture, and runs in the Royal Academy's main galleries until 16 August.

    This year's co-ordinators, Royal Academicians Ann Christopher, Eileen Cooper and Will Alsop, have selected works around the theme of 'Making Space'.
