The Design Museum’s new Home


In the first episode of Nowness new series, Fear and Love, made in collaboration with the Design Museum, British architect John Pawson walks us through his superb reimagining of the former Commonwealth Institute in London’s South Kensington, which this week opens as the new home of the Design Museum

The British architect goes a bit existential as he shows us around the new Design Museum in London

The series is also a nod to one of the museum’s inaugural exhibitions, Fear and Love: Reactions to a Complex World, which challenges designers to share their view on pressing contemporary topics, from sustainability and technology to the changing landscape of love in a digital age.

In hopes of capturing the nonconformist, fast-paced nature of design and its practitioners, Fear and Love goes against the grain of the sit-down interview and profiles designers, architects, and creative thinkers with a gonzo twist, capturing meandering conversations that touch on the personal, the professional, and the entirely tangential.
