The Design Museum held a press conference on 24 January 2012 to reveal plans to create the world’s leading museum of design and architecture at the former Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington, London scheduled to open in late 2014.
Designs for the site have been produced by two of the world’s most innovative architectural practices:
John Pawson has redesigned the interior of the Grade 2* listed building and OMA has planned the surrounding residential development.
Held at the Odeon Cinema in Kensington, speakers for the presentation were:
Deyan Sudjic Design Museum Director
Sir Terence Conran Design Museum Founder
Sir Stuart Lipton from Chelsfield Partners
Reinier de Graaf from OMA
