In October 2015 the AFV&A group enjoyed an afterhours tour of the newly renovated Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum and a visit to its temporary exhibit Provocations: The Architecture and Design of Heatherwick Studio.

Caroline Baumann, Director of the Cooper Hewitt, welcomed the group and provided some information on the museum’s history and its recent renovations before handing over to Cara McCarty, Director of Curatorial at the Museum.
