Utopia in London – level 2
People hold a design exhibition in London. Thirty-seven countries share their vision of a utopia there.
Turkey’s vision includes a wish machine. Lebanon’s vision is very realistic. It recreates the street life of Beirut. Australia’s vision includes a mosaic table of plastic in the sea. This comments on the bad effect of pollution.
The New York Times called London the new world capital for design in 2012, and the event’s director wants to hold on to that title. He thinks that the exhibition is showing that London is an international creative hub.
Difficult words: utopia (an imagined place where everything is perfect), pollution (if there’s pollution somewhere, the place is dangerously dirty), hub (a centre).
