Five architect and landscape architect-led teams have been shortlisted to redesign and re-imagine the grounds of London’s world famous Natural History Museum. The major project will aim to “create an innovative exterior setting that matches the architectural excellence of the iconic 19th Century site, whilst ensuring that the Museum grounds are easily accessible to all visitors.”

Without further ado, the leaders of the five teams are: 

  • BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) with Martha Schwartz Partners 
  • Grant Associates with Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios 
  • Niall McLaughlin Architects with Kim Wilkie 
  • Land Use Consultants (LUC) with Design Engine 
  • Stanton Williams Architects with Bradley-Hole Schoenaich Landscape Architects

Architect and competition organizer, Malcolm Reading stated: “The list reflects the diversity of interest generated by the competition. The brief for the design stage is challenging and combines the redevelopment of the current landscape with ambitions to re-energise visitor engagement – so we were looking for teams with the breadth of expertise to deliver an integrated response. The Museum is one of the world’s great institutions and we have a shortlist of designers of world-class status and capability.”
