2012 SEGD International Symposium

Innovation and collaboration are radically transforming the process and the products of design for the built environment. The second SEGD International Symposium returns to the V&A to celebrate DESIGN • INNOVATION • COLLABORATION. The symposium is being held in conjunction with the V&A’s much-anticipated survey of post-war design in Britain, British Design 1948-2012: Innovation in the Modern Age.
