£65 million extension given the go-ahead

  • Comment

Danish practice C F Møller Architects has been given the go-ahead for a £65 million extension to the Natural History Museum in South Kensington, London.

The new 16,700m 2 Darwin Centre Phase Two structure will replace an existing 1930s building and is set to house the museum's entomology and botany departments.

By the time the nine-storey scheme is completed in 2008, the centre will be home to millions of insect and plant specimens. The firm won the job of designing the addition to Alfred Waterhouse's Victorian masterpiece after an international competition in 2001.
