About this Event

Solar is the latest display from the Design Museum’s long-running Design Researchers in Residence programme coordinated by Future Observatory. The display features four emerging design researchers with projects exploring the heat of the internet, the changing scents of plants, the architecture of the conservatory and the contested restoration of Scotland’s peatland bogs.

Launched in November 2021, Future Observatory acts as both a coordinating hub for a nationwide programme, as well as a research department within the Design Museum. Future Observatory curates exhibitions, programmes events and funds and publishes new research, all with the aim of championing new design thinking on environmental issues. Future Observatory is coordinated in partnership with Arts and Humanities Research Council, part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
