ARMY NITTY GRITTY

Gareth Hoskins Architects has won a competition to design a Durham Light Infantry museum in the city. It will refit the three-storey 1960s block in a park near the station. The 2400m2 design will include polished steel and Corten. The building has two museum floors and one for use as an art gallery. Work is to start shortly for a May 2000 opening. 'We want to make more about the nitty gritty of army life rather than about being blown to bits,' said Hoskins.
