As the newly appointed director of the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, Bill Moggridge aims to make the institution on Manhattan’s Upper East Side one of the leading international design authorities in the world.
Moggridge, who picked up a Lifetime Achievement Award from the museum last fall, takes over the post from interim director Caroline Baumann. She assumed that role when Paul Walker Thompson exited last summer after an eight-year run to become president of London’s Royal College of Art.
