Lawrence, David [Curator of an exhibition] (2016) Designology. .


The 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. From the visual to the virtual and from Victorian engineering genius to modernist masterpieces, designology uncovers the fascinating designs and processes behind London’s moving metropolis. Publicity and communication, architecture, technology, engineering, service operation and the urban environment are explored, demonstrating how every aspect of the Capital’s transport system and the passenger journey have been thoughtfully designed since the early years of the 20th century. Highlights of the exhibition include posters from the golden age of travel, historic maps, tickets and signage, and a pop up design Studio where visitors will be able to find out more about contemporary design innovation. As visitors make their way through the exhibition they will begin to recognise the underlying design that surrounds them - design hidden by its familiarity in everyday life.
