Gone, but not forgotten – organic shapes in engineering design.

Whilst in London for my National Portrait Museum visit, I jumped on the Circle Line and popped down to the Science Museum because it had an exhibition of photos created in the 60s and 70s for Shelter – a housing charity here in the UK. I didn’t take many shots whilst in the museum but, looking back over what I did take, the objects mostly seem to have a lovely, rounded organic form to the design. Ironically, the building which houses all these artefacts of man’s quest to conquer, although old, has been refitted in the mail halls with a cold, modern, linear interior which is quite a contrast with the sweeping stairwells. I wish I’d noticed what I was noticing whilst I was there.

You can look at other blogger’s interpretation of ‘Gone, but not forgotten’ by going to the Daily Post site.
