Contemporary Design & Architecture

From product design to the creation of environments, experiences, services and identities, the new NGV Department of Contemporary Design and Architecture embraces an important role to collect, examine and present the most interesting trajectories of design and architecture today. Through exhibitions, commissions and programs the Department explores the many positive ways in which design is being put to work to create economic, social and cultural opportunity. Design is powered by creativity, it enriches culture, economy and society – allowing us to express, question, propose and test ideas about life and the world. Team members of the Department are ambassadors for the work of designers and architects across the allied fields of design.

The NGV Department of Contemporary Design and Architecture is generously supported by The Hugh D. T. Williamson Foundation.
