This Royal Academy exhibition, Mavericks: Breaking the Mould of British Architecture, will explore the works of architects who tread the line between invention and functionality. We're not talking sky-scraping glass towers in the shape of vegetables, either. Whether its Robert Smythson and his Elizabethan manors, the much-loved Neo-Classicist John Soane, Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Art Nouveau masterpieces or Grayson Perry's whimsical House for Essex: these are all designs that challenged contemporary notions of architecture.
You'll never look at your Victorian terrace in the same way again.
