Design Exhibition

I must be getting old; museum curators are beginning to look like schoolgirls. Take Ria Hawthorn for example. CLICK to see her giving BBC News a guided tour of the highlights of the Design Museum’s Designs of the Year Awards 2012. Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby's London 2012 Olympic Torch (2011) is one of the 100 shortlisted designs on show in seven categories. Another is a wind-propelled landmine detonator. The winners will be announced in April. Tickets are £6-£11, but TicketWeb is struggling to cope with demand; it puts you in a queue. I couldn't be bothered to wait. Click the title link to visit the Design Museum website. I have complained about its excessive use of upper case letters. Bad design!
Update: the list has been changed to lower case.

Not so decriptive, I'm afraid, just the news and price increases.
