As a major exhibition and programming sponsor of the Design Museum, puma.creative would like to offer 250 free admission tickets to members of the Creative Africa Network valid until 5 September 2010.
These are some of the exciting exhibitions you will be able to see:
Urban Africa until 5 September
A remarkable photographic journey through the eyes of David Adjaye, this exhibition reveals a unique snapshot of Africa today and documents the nature of urban life in a rapidly developing continent. One of the leading architects of his generation, David Adjaye has stepped out of his regular line of work to photograph and document key African cities, putting a new focus on African architecture.
Sustainable Futures in association with puma.safe and puma.creative until 5 September
From the world’s first carbon neutral city to a refrigerator which doubles as an aquarium, this exhibition explores a range of products, concepts and projects that address issues of sustainability in their design. Through prototypes, samples, products and film, you can find out more about your impact on the world and how to change it. Presented around five themes: Cities, Energy and Economics, Food, Materiality and Creative Citizens, this overview shows the changing role of the designer and reveals how design can make a difference.
Brit Insurance Designs of the Year until 31 October
Now in their third year, the Brit Insurance Designs Awards, “the Oscars of the design world,” showcase the most innovative and forward thinking designs from around the world. Last year’s winner, the unofficial Barack Obama poster campaign by Shepard Fairey, demonstrated the power that design can have at a grass-root level. This year’s winner is Royal College of Art graduate Min-Kyu Choi, who’s ingenious creation is plug that folds up to less than a centimetre thick. See all 91 nominated designs in this inspiring exhibition.
