Design Musem to Move to New Location?

1031designmumove.jpg

The Design Museum, the UK’s mecca of design, is apparently on the hunt for a new home according to Design Week. Actually in the works for some time now, and not just because director Deyan Sudjic has done such a great job building the museum’s brand in his two years there, they’ve finally settled on a place they’re interested in and are now in early discussions to buy a building called the Parabola, which is located in West London. Here’s a bit:

Negotiations are ongoing between both parties to ascertain the terms of this relationship, though this will be a ‘long, drawn out and complicated process,’ according to Sudjic.

‘It’s a great building and we’d love to make use of it,’ he says. ‘It would be a unique chance to bring back to life this key building of the 1960s and be a natural home for a museum dedicated to design and architecture.’

Also probably helps that Rem Koolhaas and his gang at OMA are eager to save the building too.
