Exhibition Space of the Future at the V&A, 09/12/10…

I was a guest of Click Netherfield yesterday, at their conference on the Exhibition Space of the Future at the V&A’s Sackler Centre.

James’s talk was quite inspirational, and the museum is truly beautiful.

This week in the studio…

We have two projects commissioning in London this week: the Tsui Gallery at the V&A Museum and Climate Science at the Science Museum…

Where We Do It…

We have recently added another page to our website: Where We Do It. Each of our projects has been grouped into regions, and then countries, to allow you find examples of our work across the world more easily. Expect to see a few tweaks to the map over the next few days as we get used to the new look …
