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.

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
