The Science Museum in London has announced plans to expand with three new galleries, launching three competitions to find designers. Two of the new galleries will house new permanent exhibitions about medicine and mathematics, while the third will host an interactive gallery. The three extensions combined will more than double the museum's current size.

The museum hopes to complete the mathematics and interactive galleries in 2016, with the larger medicine wing scheduled for a 2018 completion date.

Practices have until May 30th to register their interest in working on the medicine and mathematics wings, and until June 11th to register interest in the interactive gallery. The winners of the competitions will be announced at the end of the summer. 

Karen Livingston, the museum's Masterplan and Estates Director stressed that the competition is open to all practices, saying "We want to work with architects with the ideas and creativity to match our vision for this museum and ambition for our visitors, whether that’s practices with a long-standing pedigree in similar projects or dynamic firms looking to make their mark in this field."
