With the Cutty Sark off the agenda for the time being, what tourist attraction would you recommend to the design-conscious visitor?
Following on from the shipping theme, I’d take a seasonal approach to look at planes and trains instead. It’s summer and the ‘big skies’ at Duxford can be wonderful. AirSpace, a 1.2ha single-span building, opens on 12 July, telling the complete story of British aviation design. Come this winter, I’ll be among the first to see the new London Transport Museum. It promises to be a real design-junkie experience.
Sticking with a watery London theme, for views across the water, the Design Museum; to be on the water, the wonderful Couper Collection in Battersea; or to move across it, the Tate Boat between Tate Britain and Tate Modern.

The Lighthouse is looking great. For the Scottish Show 07, The Lighthouse galleries, shop, circulation areas, stairwells, toilets and viewing platform have been inhabited by the work of 34 of Scotland’s most refreshing and spirited designers in a captivating series of installations.
