Prominent exhibits include solar panels by Solar Century, the British Museum Great Court Roof by Foster & Partners and a deer’s head sculpture by William Morris (the contemporary American artist, not the 19th century designer) valued at £175 000. The exhibition runs until 23 June before moving to Cube at Manchester from 1 July.
