Last night's The London Paper ran an article about how the recession had driven a coach and horses through retail in Kensington High Street. All rather dull until I read that the old Commonwealth Institute building at the Holland Park end of Ken High St may become the new home of the Design Museum
. This is the first I have heard about this - does anyone know anything further? I for one hope that the Design Museum
keeps its SE1 base - perhaps a bit like the Tate it could have two sites?
If the Design Museum
does leave its SE1 home it is rather difficult to imagine what might take its place!
