    When the Design Museum set out to find its new home, the first choice was a site next to Herzog and de Meuron’s transformation of the Bankside powerstation into the Tate Modern. We talked to them about choosing an architect to design a new Design Museum that would sit comfortably alongside their work, but in the event, ended up in Kensington. Jacques Herzog celebrated the Design Museum's 25th anniversary in 2015 when he came to talk about his approach to architecture.
