Main site or location of works, place of delivery or of performance: Horniman Museum, London.
NUTS code UKI22
The project has three main elements to it:
1) A complete re-display of our Anthropology collections in the historic South Hall; a new flexible creative area – the Studio Space – in the 1912 historic building and a new history of the Horniman family on the South Hall Balcony.
2) Improvements to the historic gallery infrastructure to ensure that they are fit for purpose to display our nationally important collections in the 21st Century.
3) The collaborative development of cutting-edge programmes and interactions engaging our visitors both on site and on the web with our nationally and internationally important Anthropology collection.
As part of the project we are seeking an Exhibition Design Team to help us develop designs for the 1st element of the project and to support the Architectural Design team working on the 2nd element of the project to ensure that both aspects are fully co-ordinated.
The development of the galleries is dependent on securing a significant grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. A Stage 1 pass in April 2014 will signal the beginning of the development phase, which will culminate in a Stage 2 submission in February 2015. This development phase will consist of working up the designs to the equivalent of RIBA Stage D. If a Stage 2 pass is achieved, the scheme will then be worked through to final design and realisation.
Estimated value excluding VAT: 1 370 000 GBP
