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.
