New museum for RAF Battle of Britain collection

An international search has begun to find an architect to design a new £30 million landmark ‘beacon’ to house the Royal Air Force Museum’s Battle of Britain collection

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (FCBS) had previously come up with ‘an overall strategic direction and core concept’.

However the AJ understands the eventual contest winner would not be bound by the practice’s initial designs for a 116m-tower.

The building at The Royal Air Force Museum in Hendon, north west London, will showcase around a dozen aircraft and ‘tell the story of a major event in British history…encouraging people to draw parallels with modern life’.
