London in Fifty Design Icons : Design Museum Fifty Hardback
Part of the Design Museum Fifty series
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.
