Science Museum denies dropping Wilkinson Eyre

The Science Museum in London has denied reports it has dropped Wilkinson Eyre from a £150 million redevelopment programme

In 2009 the museum and the studio revealed an ambitious masterplan for the overhaul of the west London campus which featured  a gold-plated, undulating roof and a large glass ‘brain’ bulging from its Exhibition Road facade.

A Science Museum statement issued today in response to claims Wilkinson Eyre had been dropped from the project said the organisation was going through a ‘detailed planning and budgeting process as we look to move forwards.’  

The statement said the institute would ‘continue working closely with [Wilkinson Eyre] in the future.’

A spokesperson added: ‘We haven’t shelved our masterplan and our work with Wilkinson Eyre is continuing and we are putting together a detailed masterplan over the next coming years.’

The museum recently recruited V&A head of projects Karen Livingstone to work on the project.
