John Pawson to complete new Design Museum in London

John Pawson has been selected to transform the grade II* listed former Commonwealth Institute (now called the Parabola) in west London into the new Design Museum. Fighting off competition from fellow shortlisted architects David Chipperfield, Tony Fretton, Stanton Williams, Caruso St John, Haworth Tompkins and Claus en Kaan, Pawson is set to work alongside Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas’ practice OMA on the project.

Competition was fierce in the bid for the transformation of the prestigious building, however local groups are still hoping for a public enquiry into the Chelsfield Partners-developed scheme. The new Design Museum is set to include both temporary and permanent exhibition spaces, education, event, catering and retail areas and an auditorium. An exhibition designer is set to be appointed later this month.
