Beazley Designs of the Year
18 October 2017– 28 January 2018
Now in its 10th year, the exhibition brings together over 60 global projects across six categories: Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Graphics, Product and Transport – featuring film, virtual reality, audio and objects representing the breadth and variety of this year’s designs.
Activism and protest has proven to be a strong theme across many of the categories. See the original Pussyhat, symbolising women’s solidarity in protest of President Donald Trump’s sexist remarks and the Refugee Nation Flag, created to represent stateless athletes at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Ferrari: Under the Skin

15 November 2017 – 15 April 2018
Come and race through 70 years of passion, glamour and design innovation, with unique behind-the-scenes access to one of the most iconic car brands.

From the very first Ferrari to Michael Schumacher’s winning Formula One car and the newest hybrid model, the exhibition features rare cars and memorabilia displayed in public for the first time. Discover the Ferrari experience through original hand-drawn sketches, sculpture-like models and engines, alongside films and interviews telling one of the great design stories of all time.
