The Science Museum in west London is looking for an ‘experienced and proven’ lead designer for a new exhibition focusing on the technological history of the capital

The winner of the £240,000 contract will create the London Science City gallery, exploring London’s role in the major scientific advances of the 17th and 18th centuries.

The project is the latest instalment in the South Kensington museum’s £60 million regeneration masterplan, which includes a new mathematics gallery by Zaha Hadid Architects due to open in December.

The first scheme in the masterplan, a library and research centre by Coffey Architects, completed in March, while an interactive gallery by Muf opened earlier this month.

Other competition-winning schemes also under development include a suite of medical galleries by WilkinsonEyre, an events space by Duggan Morris, an auditorium by Dow Jones Architects and an entrance by HAT Projects.

The contract notice for the London Science City gallery says: ‘The appointed lead designer will contract with and manage a multidisciplinary team encompassing 3D design, graphic design, and lighting design services for the development and delivery of a new gallery.

‘The lead designer will be responsible for the full coordination of design, engineering and services for the project. Therefore the lead designer will ensure the coordination of work packages produced by client direct appointment consultants such as structural, and MEP.’

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on 21 November
