To mark its 25th anniversary, the Museum of London has revealed that phase I of its Wilkinson Eyre redevelopment

  • Comment

To mark its 25th anniversary, the Museum of London has revealed that phase I of its Wilkinson Eyre redevelopment will begin in January.

The scheme will create a major entrance to the museum, connected via a glazed bridge to the Foster and Partners development at 1 London Wall, and then access to street level by escalators and lifts.

The development will result in a 70 per cent increase in gallery space, with additional or refurbished galleries opening every year until the project's completion date in 2006. The first gallery to be added will be the Linbury Gallery, sponsored by Lord Sainsbury.

Phase II of the project will turn the existing courtyard garden into the 'Centre Court', through the addition of a sweeping glazed catenary roof, spanning the 30m space.
