WAN’s Michael Hammond talk to Deyan Sudjic, Director of London’s Design Museum about the ten year quest to find a new building that would showcase the UK’s design industry, connect with and draw from the past but also provide a platform and a base for the next generation of designers to learn, draw inspiration and drive forward the UK’s role as a leader in this field.

Key facts:
The Design Museum’s new £83-million London home by John Pawson and OMA opened in November 2016 at the former Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington.

Dutch architecture practice OMA worked with London firm Allies and Morrison, and Arup engineers to restore the shell of the 1960s Grade II*-listed building in west London.
