Salone del Mobile, Clerkenwell Design Week, Serpentine Pavilion, the Venice Biennale of Architecture, the London Festival of Architecture, London Design Week, are you sure that your agenda is not completely full? And don't forget the European Football Leagues. The next six months look like a delirious hurdle race, isnít it better to save some energy while we have time?

If you think 2014 doesn't have enough hedges to jump over and you still have some free slots in your busy schedule, between the presentation of some quirky chair created by some conceptual artist and some eccentric installations by some bizarre creative talents looking for their 5 minutes of glory, here I am to satisfy your insatiable craving for architecture.

We could start with a walk along the River Thames to reach the Design Museum and the inevitable Designs of the Year exhibition. A multi-coloured selection from graphics to architecture, passing through fashion, of the most interesting creative productions of the year.

Exhibitions are 2 for 1 at the Building Centre with an unmissable offer from NLA: London's Growing Up! and the photography exhibition Absorb/Reflect/Scatter by Agnese Sanvito. The young Italian photographer based in London is at her first exhibition, where she has selected some of her best shots to reflect on how colour shapes our perception of the building. You have time until the 26th April to enjoy a nice cup of tea at the cafeteria of the Building Centre surrounded by her selection of vivid pictures.

The eagerly awaited exhibition London's Growing Up! , which will open its doors on 3rd April, has already ďput the cat among the pigeonsĒ sparking wide debate with the publication of part of the survey curated by New London Architecture, that unveils the futuristic, while not unexpected, destiny of the London skyline with over 230 quirky contours planned in the next few years.

A suggestion for an alternative after-work event, on the 3rd April the London School of Economics is organising Transforming Indian Cities, a public lecture with the Indian economist Isher Ahluwalia and chaired by professor Nicholas Stern, who analyze the importance of politiciansí involvement in the process of making cities and supervising the necessary transformation.

Walking around the tiny streets of the Shoreditch district check out Charlotte Road for the stunning colours of Yoni Alterís latest work, iconic branding for Londonís new TV channel London Live at the Kemistry Gallery. A series of 'postcards' of City icons consisting of different abstract perspectives and vivid colours.
