[First look] The second phase of CF Møller’s Darwin Centre at the Natural History Museum
CF Møller’s £78 million Darwin Centre opens to the public on 15 September at London’s Natural History Museum in the form of an eight storey concrete cocoon surrounded by a glass atrium.
The centre’s design provides research facilities for UK scientists and allows for safe storage of the museum’s millions of specimens.
This second phase of design completes the museum’s Western site and connects Alfred Waterhouse’s 1881 building with the first phase of the Darwin Centre that opened in 2002.
