Save it

Installation artists Ewan Forster and Christopher Heighes rescue forgotten artifacts from the abandoned King’s College Plant Sciences laboratories in Herne Hill – once home to Nobel-winning research – before the site is demolished and turned into flats. ‘Plant Science’ fills the Inigo Rooms at Somerset House with reclaimed scientific and pedagogical apparatus, offering one last chance to engage with the once-great edifice.

An interesting reflection into the past of science studies. The Inigo Rooms is a new cultural space in central London and it's definitely worth visiting.

A great way to spend half an hour in central London, and it's free. Love the botanical specimens that appear throughout - some from the 1920s!

Fascinating. I loved seeing the old equipment, and it's presented beautifully. Brings back memories of school days in science labs!

A wonderful collection of strange scientific objects in the most gorgeous setting. I want to visit the original plant science lab in herne hill before it's pulled down.
