London's Victoria & Albert Museum have announced that David Bickle, formerly a partner at Hawkins\Brown, has been appointed as the new Director of Design, Exhibitions and FuturePlan. In this role Bickle will be responsible for the care and future development of the V&A’s buildings, as well as the presentation of all of the museum’s permanent collections and exhibitions. With the construction of Amanda Levete Architects' new addition on Exhibition Road underway - coupled with the V&A's plans for new exhibition spaces in Dundee, Scotland, and in East Stratford on the former site of the 2012 London Olympic Games - the museum is also in the process of helping to establishing a collection in Shenzhen.

The V&A is a beguiling institution that has slowly crept up and stolen my heart. An affair that started with the Boilerhouse Gallery that I visited as a student and more recently with 'Savage Beauty' that presents Alexander McQueen's breathtaking body of work. It's a remarkable opportunity for me to join the Museum at a time of incredible change; a point at which I can help shape its future in a rapidly changing digital world; continue the legacy of commissioning great architecture, exhibitions and design and to be a custodian of its core values. It is my intention to create thoughtful, immersive and interactive environments for others to be captivated, educated and inspired by the museum’s treasures.
