British Design at V&A
Here's another of those Silver Jubilee celebration shows, although this one begins in 1948 with the Festival of Britain. British Design 1948-2012: Innovation in the Modern Age opens tomorrow at the V&A Museum in London and runs until 12 August (title link). It includes every iconic design from Mary Quant’s mini skirt to an E-type Jaguar. A recent entry is a model of Zaha Hadid’s London Aquatics Centre for the Olympic Games. Sadly, the show is a tourist ripoff with tickets costing £12 for adults and £10 for silver surfers. Visit Valentine Mansion for a similar show, but free (CLICK).
