Deyan Sudjic, John Pawson and Reinier de Graaf present the new Design Museum (London) in Venice

During a press preview ahead of the Architecture Biennale in Venice, plans for the relocation of the Design Museum (London) were presented by Museum Director Deyan Sudjic, designer John Pawson and architect Reinier de Graaf of OMA. The Architecture Biennale opens to the public tomorrow (7 June 2014).

The Design Museum has occupied its current site at Tower Bridge, London since 1989 when it was opened by Sir Terence Conran. In late 2015, the Museum will close its doors to the public as it embarks upon a mammoth relocation project to London’s cultural quarter in Kensington where it will take root in the Grade II* listed former Commonwealth Institute building.

World-class designers and architects are involved in creating the new Design Museum. John Pawson is remodelling the museum’s interior and Reinier de Graaf is designing the residential development for the site. Cartlidge Levene are creating the wayfinding and signage system. Studio Myerscough are exhibition designers for the permanent collection display, which will be free to enter for the first time in the museum’s history. Fabrique are crafting the museum’s new digital identity.
