In June 2007 the V&A celebrated the 150th anniversary of its opening at the South Kensington site. To mark the occasion, 150 leading artists, designers, architects and photographers were invited to contribute a page to an anniversary album, expressing what they found most inspiring about the V&A and its collections. The creative brief stated that the page could be in the form of a drawing, design, sketch, graphic, computer-generated image or a simple message in words.
