Designing the V&A photo

Designing the V&A explores through drawings and photographs the history of the V&A's buildings, from the 1850s to the present day. It highlights the architects, artists, designers and engineers who created the Museum, and shows how the innovative building techniques and rich decoration of the original 19th-century Museum contributed to its educational mission. However, as curatorial thinking and the needs of the V&A have changed, the buildings have undergone continual transformation, culminating in 2017 with the new Exhibition Road entrance and galleries.
