Design Museum Fifty, Industrial / commercial art & design, Prose: non-fiction

One of two titles in a new series from London's prestigious Design Museum, looking at the unique design stories of the most iconic cities in the world.

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 masthead
Abbey Road
Battersea Power Station
Tate Modern Turbine Hall
Banksy graffiti mural
Mary Quant miniskirt
Tube map
Christopher Kane flourescent dress
Lloyd's of London
London Aquatics Centre
...and many more.
