Work starts on Henry Moore Foundation archive

  • Comment

The second phase of Hugh Broughton Architects’ redevelopment of the Henry Moore Foundation’s complex has started on site

The proposal includes an rejig and extension of  the foundation’s office block at the centre on the Perry Green estate, in Hertfordshire - Henry Moore’s home from 1940 until his death in 1986.

The library will be expanded into an archive for the foundation’s photographic and bibliographic collections.

Construction of this second phase is due to complete by May 2016.

The first stage was completed in 2011.

The Henry Moore Foundation was established in 1977 at Moore’s home to encourage public appreciation of the visual arts and preserve the sculptor’s legacy.
