California Dreaming

The Design Museum in London currently has an exhibition on about California Design in its new home on Kensington High Street. ‘California: Designing Freedom’ explores the California cool phenomenon, from the 1960s hippies to Facebook, and everything inbetween, that has led to such pioneering designs and lifestyles.

A well as the exhibition, you can listen to podcasts from the curator, exploring 10 items in the exhibition, or attend a talk on a related subject.

Aldgate library has put together a display of some of our California related books, so come and find your Californian inspiration!
