About the Venue
The Design Museum is the world’s leading design museum and European Museum of the Year 2018. The Design Museum is the only place in the UK where the design industry, education and the public can come together to change the way people think about themselves and the future.
The museum is a registered charity founded in 1989. It relocated to a spectacular modern landmark in Kensington in 2016 and has welcomed nearly one and a half million visitors since re-opening.
The unique landmark from the 1960s, a Grade II* listed building had stood vacant for over a decade, was transformed by a design team led by John Pawson who made the building fit for a 21st century museum, whilst at the same time retaining its unique spatial quality.
The Design Museum worked with John Pawson on the interior fit out of its building. OMA were responsible for the overall master plan and in conjunction with Allies and Morrison for the refurbishment of the exterior of the museum.
