Well maybe the sun never quite shone but it’s been a busy summer, culminating in the opening of Power of Making at the V&A museum, curated by our very own Master Daniel Charny, just a couple of nights ago. What can we add to this and this and this? Maybe 3,000 visitors on the first day is sufficient!
The other highlight of this summer has to be our recent appointment as Content and Interpretation Consultants for the Design Museum’s planned move to the former Commonwealth Institute in 2014. We’re tasked with drafting a new Interpretation Policy and we’re planning the permanent exhibition, as well as further work to their collection, all targeted on a Heritage Lottery stage 2 bid. We’re working with an extensive team including John Pawson Architects, Morag Myerscough and others. Did I mention we’re quite excited about this too?
Other news in the works, including the next stage of Parliament of Owls, Dee judging the Design Fund for Growth (and, ummm, joining the luminaries of the Awesome Foundation?!). But another time. Until then, here’s hoping for that indian summer….
