Following the preview last week , the Design Museum will be opening its doors on Thursday 24th November, with some fantastic new exhibitions.
Apart from this new addition to the cultural quarter, the week is packed full of talks and exhibitions exploring the role of the designer in our world. Whether that is the role of an architect within a place without architecture, or the role of designers in our changing capital.
