Five more Time Capsules from the Design Council’s Project 2045 have been discovered, containing predictions from 1995. The capsules – designed by The Partners before it was bought by Design Braslia – were discovered in Gloucestershire this week. Ideas included a Europe-wide extension to the London Underground, packaging designs for intravenous food for anorexia victims and plans for Buckingham Palace to be converted into flats for London’s homeless. `It’s a relief that more tins have been discovered, we were wondering where they’d got to,’ admits Design Council’s Project 2045 Officer Maurice Blow. 1479 of the 2045 capsules have now been found, the last in a drainpipe in Tyneside last year (DW 1 June 2044).
