2012 Design Summit
Who do we think we are?
This year's Design Summit brought together world-leading designers, business leaders and government officials to discuss and debate the question 'Who do we think we are in 2012?'
Taking the opportunity of the Olympics to move our vision of Britain forward the Design Summit made a bold statement – that the time is right to reflect on the distinctive national qualities that are uniquely ours and offer such potential for our future success. How can design help turn our national characteristics into economic growth? What are the lessons we can learn in 2012 from British identity to increase inward investment and export growth?
Where? When? Who?
The Summit was held on 26 June 2012 in the Committee Chamber at London's City Hall, designed by Foster + Partners, one of Britain's leading architects. City Hall is the embodiment of British design and a product of the national identity the Design Summit discussed.
