Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The new galleries are the result of a collaboration between the National Media Museum in Bradford and the London Science Museum, and will include 500 sq m of temporary exhibition space, a 290 sq m flexible studio space for installations and events, and a café bar area designed to take the venue from day into night.
Work is already underway on the new venue. Says Contracts Director Stewart Arnott: “Elmwood has been contracted to carry out the enabling and shellworks for the new venue, ranging from M&E installation, air handling plant, and power and data installation, through to joinery, bespoke furniture, floor and wall finishes, lighting and graphics.
“Each element has to be carried out with sensitivity to the live environment and in accordance with strict criteria. So we’re working extremely closely with both the client and design team to ensure we bring the project in on time, within budget and to a flawless finish.”
Once complete, Media Space is expected to host two major exhibitions and a series of installations and events each year.
