Gallery Talk: Jon Abbott (Barnbrook) and Brian Studak (Plaid)

Jon and Brian led an exclusive after-hours tour ‘California: Designing Freedom’ where the designers offered insight into the design process and spatial narrative behind the exhibition. After the tour, there was an opportunity to explore the exhibition independently.
