The Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture (MoDA) is an excellent resource for your studies in Art and Design. 

Our collections of textiles, wallpapers, graphic design and illustration are very helpful for generating ideas, getting inspired, and for research.  You can get to see and handle objects close-up and take as many photographs as you require for your own reference.    

We are a 10 minute walk from Hendon campus. Visits are by appointment only, so email to make an appointment, or just to chat about your ideas and how MoDA might be useful.
