A swathe of design groups including Ben Kelly Design and All of Us will finally see their creations realised this week at the opening of The Public Gallery on 28 June. Designed by architect Will Alsop, the gallery includes 18 interactive trees, three of which reach from the ground to the top floors. Visitors wearing radio frequency tags can input information about themselves, such as their favourite colours or heights, on to panels on the trees and this allows the exhibitions in the gallery to react to them as they move through the sections.
The new permanent displays are part of a year-long, Department for Transport led initiative to get more young people to study engineering.
