Looks awesome doesn't it !
The current design museum is so small they can barely fit anything in there, they will ba able to have a much larger permanent collection and more exhibits on at the same time. Plus the building looks cool

WE POP-UP AT THE DESIGN JUNCTION
FREE ENTRY with registration
20th-23rd September 2012


Design Junction takes the London Design Festival by storm this September when it welcomes Tramshed, The Crafts Council and Midcentury.Modern into its new venue in the centre of London. Design Junction attracted 6,500 visitors last year. Tramshed was declared by many the best show of London Design Week..'The brilliantly curated Midcentury Modern is a must-visit event for anyone after original mid-century design.' (Charlotte Abrahams, freelance design writer FT How to Spend it, Guardian, Observer, Elle). The Crafts Council has a record of stellar shows. All four combine to create a supershow with top brands including Benchmark, Pinch, Matthew Hilton, Hitch Mylius, Cappellini, Cassina, Artek, Modus, StudioIlse.

Visit our pop up shop of designers and dealers as well as seminars and Pecha Kucha from world famous architects and design behemoths or put your feet up in hand-built cinema designed by art and design collective The Decorators who with and film footage organised by Blueprint magazine and at all times of the day. The cinema will be an improvisation of the decadent interiors that greeted audiences during cinema’s golden age in the 1930s. Popcorn, elaborate signage and flip-down seats will recreate the familiar excitement of cinema-going.

I've been to a few PechaKucha events here in Ottawa, they're always interesting even if they're not directly design related. There was one research lab who was running fatigue tests on cells, and some initiatives to help homelessness through a furniture store (still not exactly sure of the logistics of this one, but it was interesting nonetheless).
Highly recommended if its anything like the ones over here.
