Jan KaplickÃ½, who died earlier this year, was the Czech architect responsible for some of the most remarkable buildings that Britain has ever seen. Lordâ€™s cricket ground holds the press box he built with his former partner, Amanda Levete â€“ it was their first major project and won the Stirling Prize.

KaplickÃ½ also designed the Selfridges department store in Birmingham, 2003 and yet even more remarkable are the buildings that KaplickÃ½ designed, which the world will never see â€“ to say nothing of his stream of ideas for solar powered vehicles, electric cars, jewellery, bikinis and double-decker buses. This exhibition will celebrate the work of a gifted architect and designer.
