Architecture and Museums: Design on Display
Thursday 17 May, 2-5pm, Cinema, 43 Gordon Square, London
The workshop will explore the historical and contemporary dimensions of architecture and design in museum settings. We will focus on two recent and ongoing London projects, the Medieval and Renaissance Galleries at the V&A, and the new Design Museum on Kensington High Street. Speakers from these institutions will be joined by architectural historians for a lively discussion.
