Project Background

Britain's Pavilion - Expo '67 Canada, F.H.K. Henrion, 1967

The Designing Britain project was managed in the Faculty of Arts and Architecture at the University of Brighton. It was funded as part of the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) distributed national electronic resource for learning, teaching and research (DNER). It ran from 1 March 2001 to 31 August 2002.

The end product consists of 7 web-based E-Learning modules, each containing about 100 visual records. Visual source material derives from the University's expanding Design Archives as well as incorporating associated collections. The product is aimed at and delivered to the Higher Education (HE) community.

Around 700 images from the Designing Britain E-Learning modules are searchable through the VADS catalogue, and cross-searchable with other collections including images from the Design Council Archive and the Design Council Slide Collection.
