MOSI opens design contest for £4m temporary exhibitions gallery

  • Comment

Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) has launched a design competition for a new £4 million temporary exhibitions gallery

Planned to complete in 2018, the 700m² project will create an ‘outstanding architectural space for temporary exhibitions’ within the vaults of an 1830 warehouse.

The historic structure is part of the world’s oldest surviving railway station complex known as Manchester Liverpool Road.

The city centre museum – which is part of the London-based Science Museum Group – has occupied the Grade I-listed warehouse and former station since 1983.

According to MOSI: ‘Distinctive in character, the space will reveal the significance of the buildings and provide inspiration for curators and artists. It will offer audiences new opportunities to explore science through historic and contemporary perspectives.’

The statement continued: ‘The new exhibition space will help to shift the centre of gravity of the Science Museum Group towards the north and enable the museum  to develop its own touring exhibitions  which will go on to exhibit across the Science Museum Group and worldwide.’

The competition is based on the Restricted Procedure under the EU Services Directive and complies with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 – according to MOSI.

The deadline for applications is 10am on 5 August.
