London in Fifty Design Icons : Design Museum Fifty Hardback

Part of the Design Museum Fifty series

Description

In this new series, the Design Museum looks at the fifty design icons of major cities around the world - icons that, when viewed together, inherently sum up the spirit of their city.

Covering anything from buildings and monuments to a graffiti mural or an item of clothing, we are able to build up an intricate portrait of a city, layer by layer. From its long-serving Routemaster buses and world-famous tube map to the miniskirts of the swinging sixties and the imposing silhouette of Battersea Power Station, London is a tapestry of design masterpieces.

Join Deyan Sudjic, Director of the Design Museum, as he unravels the visual history of one of our most complex and intriguing cities. Contents include:The Times mastheadAbbey RoadBattersea Power StationTate Modern Turbine HallBanksy graffiti muralMary Quant miniskirtTube mapChristopher Kane flourescent dressLloyd's of LondonLondon Aquatics Centre...and many more.
