Dutch architecture firm OMA has joined forces with Allies and Morrison to construct the new home for London’s Design Museum. Helmed by interior architect John Pawson, the modernist structure is located in South Kensington and spans a remarkable 10,000 square meters — it’s apparently three times the size of the former Design Museum in South-East London.
This past Thursday, the $106 million USD museum opened its doors to the public. Visitors trickled into the building’s two gallery spaces, library, archive, auditorium, learning facilities as well as a restaurant with remarkable sights of Holland Park. According to Business Insider, “the new structure has been built with an aim to be ‘the world’s leading institution dedicated to contemporary design and architecture.’”
