news805.jpgWe've all got our eyes on China these days and opening this weekend at London’s  Victoria & Albert museum  is China Design Now, an exhibition which captures the climate of the continent today as it opens up to global influences and responds to the hopes and dreams of its emergent urban middle class. This is the first exhibition in the UK to explore the recent explosion of contemporary design in China, and the first to attempt to understand the impact of rapid economic development on architecture and design in the country’s major cities. From significant architectural projects, including the 2008 Olympic national stadium, to the latest in fashion and graphics, the exhibition investigates this dynamic phase. (Sportswearnet)
