Wilkinson Eyre Architects

  • Comment

Wilkinson Eyre Architects has completed the first phase of its £33 million Museum of London redevelopment.The project reworks the existing 1970s Powell & Moya building by creating a series of 'dramatic new spaces'and improving circulation.

This phase of the development includes a new foyer space with a glazed roof and a new special exhibitions gallery, which is sited in the void between the museum and the access road below. Called the '20th and 21st Century Gallery', it provides modern interpretation facilities that will showcase the museum's conservation work. The overall masterplan for the site - also drawn up by Wilkinson Eyre - aims to increase capacity and gallery space by 70 per cent while remaining sympathetic to the original building and the adjacent Barbican Centre.
