Explore systems of measurement and create unique spaces through play, performance, printing and sculpture

Led by Argentinian artist Martin Cordiano with BalinHouseProjects, House Taken Over explores how the development of systems of measurement in the UK was established by monarchs using their own bodies as an official reference.
