As part of their plans to revitalise British exports, The British

Government has created several initiatives to promote

exports of British products and services. As part of this

strategy...they have commissioned the design of a trade

pavilion to promote “A Century of British Design”, and which

will travel to various exhibition halls in major cities across the

world. The exhibition will celebrate all aspects of the British

design industry - graphics, illustration, photography, furniture,

products, fashion, interiors, architecture etc.; and the story

will be told in sections dedicated to each decade of the

century 1912-2012.

Each of you will concentrate on one particular decade

of design, and the aesthetic of your design should be

appropriate to that era. You will, therefore, have to research

that particular period of history both in respect of design but,

also, the culture and lifestyle of that period. (Cate .....has

offered to assist if any of you have trouble finding material

or wish to discuss your research). In each of the different

site layouts of the venues, your stand will be part of a large

pavilion showing all ten decades. A CENTURY OF BRITISH DESIGN
