British architect Amanda Levete has beaten more than 110 architectural firms to build an extension to the V&A on London's Exhibition Road. It followed an international competition to create a new entrance and a mixed-use courtyard on the museum's last remaining undeveloped site.

Miller's crossing: The contrast between artist Garry Fabian Miller's 'simple' family home and his 'chaotic' studio darkroom is striking
Sunday 06 February 2011
Garry Fabian Miller's abstract artworks have been the subject of two recent exhibitions in London: Shadow Catchers at the V&A and The Colour of Time at HackelBury Fine Art, Kensington. But his camera-less photograms are far more a product of Miller's rural way of life. His works – which capture light passed through coloured glass, cut paper or liquid on to photosensitive paper – are tranquil, luminous images that nonetheless hum with intensity.

For architecture in Scotland, this has been a mixed week. On Monday a van managed to demolish a 16th-century stone gate at Scone Palace in Perthshire. But there was better news yesterday when the V&A Museum unveiled six impressive potential designs for a new cultural outpost on Dundee's waterfront, to be opened in 2014. One door gets knocked down, another opens, it seems. The new museum is projected to provide a large boost to the local Dundee economy.

Of the many events taking place during this year's London Design Festival, one of the more unusual is 26 Treasures at the Victoria & Albert museum. From tomorrow until next Sunday, if you venture into the British Galleries, you will be greeted with a slightly more poetic display than you might expect. Twenty-six writers – including poets Andrew Motion and Maura Dooley – have been paired with an object from the gallery, writing and responding to it in 62 words.
Carola Long: The most interesting fragrances are those that also offer a conduit to years of social history'
Saturday 11 September 2010
Much is made of perfume's Proustian properties; its ability to teleport the wearer back into their memories. However, the most interesting fragrances don't just offer a conduit to our own personal past – to hosing ourselves down with Body Shop White Musk, for example – but to years of social history.

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London has acquired an extensive Punch & Judy archive made up of scores of artworks, photographs and books. In some ways the puppet show, with its traditional costumes, the grotesque visages of the characters and the lack of hi-tech tricks, looks like very old-fashioned entertainment. Avatar it is not. But on the other hand the show's bold approach to themes such as domestic violence, child neglect and disrespect for the law might be said to give it a strikingly contemporary feel.
