Manchester Museum reveals £54 million proposals

  • Comment

Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) has unveiled its £54 million redevelopment proposals.

Designed by David Dernie, who heads up the Manchester School of Architecture, the scheme will create a new museum quarter stretching for almost a kilometre from the River Irwell to Ian Simpson’s Hilton Tower.

At the heart of the scheme are plans for a new building, featuring translucent, lily-shaped ETFE columns which will funnel rainfall for grey-water use.

According to MOSI, this 2,785m2 building ‘will act as a striking new orientation area for the museum [which is spread over 2.5ha].'

One of the four new galleries, dubbed Revolution Manchester, will showcase the industrial and scientific breakthroughs invented within the city.
