Rapid Response Collecting at the Victoria and Albert Museum

The latest New Yorker, in its "Talk of the Town" section, introduces us to the just launched Rapid Response Collecting project in the London-based museum's Contemporary Architecture, Design, and Digital Department.

Its stated goal is to demonstrate "how design reflects and defines how we live together today."

According to the New Yorker, "In practical terms, this means that the curators have been given carte blanche to scour the streets — in a global sense — for items of interest and get them into the museum as quickly as possible."
