Amongst the hubbub of Covent Garden’s ‘tourist central’ atmosphere, tucked away in a courtyard corner is the London Transport Museum and it’s history of all things public transport related in the capital and beyond.
A large collection of vehicles, station furniture and graphic design is on display, while it even offers Hidden London tours, taking you behind the scenes and often underground to lost tunnels, and even Churchill’s secret bomb shelter.
The museum’s Designology exhibition explores how design is encountered in our everyday journeys and how this has evolved over the last century, as well as looking at how our travel experiences might develop in the future.
Although not necessarily a weekend event, taking place at the beginning of next week is Designed For Growth: led by architects Euan Russell and Helen Davis from Grimshaw, the hands-on workshop will provide a unique insight into the multidisciplinary working environment of two major projects: Crossrail and the Northern Line Extension.
Giving an understanding of the role of design within complex, large-scale infrastructure projects currently under construction in London when designing from the scale of the city down to industrial design components.
