A Museum for Now
We’re delighted to announce the launch of a new project we’re very passionate about – A Museum For Now – a new website and forum that looks at what museums could and should be, now and in the future. It takes the form of ideas and essays by our own team, along with some fascinating future visions conceived of by the postgraduate class we’ve been leading at the School of Art, Architecture and Design at London Metropolitan University. Further guest writers to be announced. Link to the website here.

Sutton Hoo in the Architects’ Journal
We’re very grateful to the Architects Journal for their superb, newly-published Building Study of the Sutton Hoo tower, a new-build intervention and just one part of our five-year project to rework and reinterpret the visitor experience at one of the jewels of the Anglo-Saxon era and one of the most archeologically-significant sites in Europe.

The Human Touch Opens at the Fitzwilliam Museum
This exhibition at the Fitzwilliam that explores touch, has opened. There are many extraordinary artists displayed in this fascinating exhibition – including: Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Hogarth, Turner, Rodin, Degas, Frank Auerbach, Richard Long, and many more. We really enjoyed creating a sensory set of displays where the craft of making and tactility is explored throughout the displays. We were also thrilled to be invited to make a film about the exhibition’s themes that features at the Fitzwilliam. Read more about the exhibition here
