Design Circle Members Represent the Present through Design

Dear Design Aficionados of the Future

This is 2012

London

On the eve of the London Design Festival, Founder of the Design Museum Sir Terence Conran, Director Deyan Sudjic OBE and Chairman of the Trustees Luqman Arnold, joined by leading architects and designers, attended a ceremony today to celebrate the ground breaking of the new Design Museum at the former Commonwealth Institute on Kensington High Street.

To mark this historic moment in the development of the Design Museum, a time capsule was buried in the foundations of the new building. Leading figures in the world of design and architecture were invited to nominate an object to be included in the capsule. They include the museum’s Design Circle members, Zaha Hadid, Paul Smith, Norman Foster and Cecil Balmond, as well as Sir Terence Conran and John Pawson.
