Terence Conran has recently donated a large sum to enable the London Design Museum to move to a bigger location. He gave the museum $28 million so that the facility could expand to three times its current size, according to Bloomberg.

"Sir Terence's exceptionally generous gift to the Design Museum will not only help this excellent institution move to a new home, but will also help showcase Britain's ability to produce some of the world's greatest designers," Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt said.

According to the Guardian, Conran established the museum's predessor, the Boilerhouse, in 1982, and is looking forward to this next step as it is moved to the old Commonwealth Institute.

"Moving to the Commonwealth Institute will allow all our dreams and ambitions for the Design Museum to come true, to create a world-class space with the size and scope for the serious promotion and celebration of design and architecture in this country," Conran told the news source.

The new home for the museum is expected to be completed in 2014.
