One of the smaller but more intriguing happenings under the London Design Festival umbrella is an exhibition at the cutely named Department of Coffee and Social Affairs. This Leather Lane coffee shop houses Imagined Cities, a collection of architectural artwork by recent architecture graduates. The works, placed alongside pieces by more established designers, are chosen to illustrate the many and varied challenges facing our cities.

Catrina Stewart talks about her piece, Farmhouse Tower.

Imagined Cities opens today and runs until 13 October.
