Zaha Hadid is the new owner of London Design Museum

Design Museum is located by the River Thames near Tower Bridge in central LondonEngland. The museum covers product, industrial, graphic, fashion and architectural design. It was founded in 1989 and claims to be the first museum of modern design. In 2007, the museum was listed by The Times newspaper as number two in their top five museums of the year.

The London Design Museum resigned that Zaha Hadid has bought their building, home of the institution since 1989, a year after she made ​​an offer to a private funder. Although the architect’s plans for the structure of the fifties are still unknown,  some have a hunch that she intends to turn it into a museum of architecture, while others believe that the building will be the new headquarters of his office.The money from the sale will be used to help fund a new museum in the former Commonwealth Institute in Kensington. The interior of this new museum will be designed by Pawson, while the OMA will be in charge of the design of the neighborhood residential.
