British Library

Chose to wonder up to Wellcome Foundation Gallery along Euston Road so went to British Library as they have some interesting exhibitions, sadly the maps exhibition had finished but there was an exhibition on about design and the invention of ideas through solving problems. A wide range of ideas, from a 3 year old who created a double broom to a father who had devised a new eye test process that didn't involve needing eye drops after his son lost sight in one eye because he couldn't do drops, very humbling.
The exhibition at Wellcome was Skin. The way that they combine art and science was incredible, very thought provoking and a lot of ideas to take away about exhibiting and using materials in different ways. Sadly couldn't take photographs but worth a visit to the foundation as has a good cafe too.
