This Design Museum is mostly free to the public. There is a schedule full of different cultural activities for everyone: free design workshops, conferences, exhibitions and special installations. The assistants are on hand to help with drawing, making, and building an abstract paper city. Other options include interacting with Bare Conductive sensor technology, to help visitors generate their own soundscapes and audio, or learn more about classic design icons. There are many workshops, some for young people, for kids, and families. All materials are provided by the organisation.

There is a sound installation made by the Royal College of Art. Also, the public will be able to feel the design and understand how the design process works, in a workshop managed by Arup. There will also be several talks, one of the most important will be by John Pawson, the architect and designer of the manta ray-like ceiling of the museum. Other conferences by famous architects and designers like Morag Myerscough and Roger Cunliffe will also take place at the Museum.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
