Making Memories is an exhibition showcasing seven monuments and memorials by the internationally celebrated architect Sir David Adjaye OBE.

In this exhibition visitors are asked what part buildings can play in collective remembrance - how can architecture be used to tell stories? 

Beam collaborated with Adjaye Associates and Design Museum curators to create a sophisticated lighting scheme that accentuated the form and three-dimensional characteristics of the architectural models and scenic elements.
