The National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, is the foremost Maritime Museum in the world and a key attraction in the Greenwich World Heritage site. The Museum is part of Royal Museums Greenwich, comprising the National Maritime Museum, Queen’s House, Royal Observatory and Cutty Sark.
The Museum wishes to procure an exhibition design practice to develop the fifth in a new programme of temporary exhibitions to be mounted in the 813m² Special Exhibitions Gallery of the Museum’s Sammy Ofer Wing. The exhibition will open in Greenwich in Summer 2014 and will then tour to several international venues. The successful design team will be expected to design the exhibition with touring requirements in mind, and to provide a solution for a ‘turnkey’ version of the exhibition for one of the international venues.
The race to determine longitude, or how to calculate where you were at sea, gripped Europe during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with large rewards offered to anyone who could solve this great problem of navigation in the age of sail. Presenting many of the ingenious methods and instruments designed to scoop the prize and transform seafaring navigation forever, the exhibition will bring alive the world-changing story of longitude, exploring the industry and imagination, relationships and rivalries that shaped one of the largest scientific and technical endeavours in history.
The design team will be expected to work collaboratively with the Museums exhibitions, curatorial, learning and interpretation and digital media departments.
