Transport museum steers lecture series

Wayne Hemingway and Arup design director Malcolm Smith are to give lectures on sustainable design at the London Transport Museum, kickstarting a new series of events at the venue.


As part of the London Festival of Architecture, the two designers will be revealing their visions for the future of sustainable development over the next week.


Smith’s presentation on Thursday evening will reveal the work of Arup’s Integrated Urbanism Unit on Chinese eco-city Dongtan, near Shanghai. The city will run entirely on renewable energy.


The following Monday sees Hemingway, the fashion label Red or Dead founder and built environment campaigner, speaking about his passion for creating affordable, well-designed homes.


These are the first in a planned series of events at the museum, exploring urban culture, art and social history, as part of what it claims is its new focus on design innovation.
