London's Science Museum has announced Wilkinson Eyre as the winner of its competition to design new medical galleries. Winning the project over a shortlist of six other architects - including Caruso St John, Amanda Levete Architects and Haworth Tompkins - Wilkinson Eyre's £24 million galleries will occupy 3,000 square metres on the museum's first floor, almost doubling the size of the museum's existing galleries.

Karen Livingstone, Director of Masterplan at the Science Museum, said, "Wilkinson Eyre's designs conveyed a real sensitivity for the Museum’s unrivalled medical collections and the gallery space. Their approach will create an elegant and contemporary space to display beautiful objects and tell compelling human stories."

The Medical Galleries are just one part of a transformation that will see almost a third of the museum's space transformed, with winners of the competitions for a new Mathematics and Interactive galleries still to be announced, in late August and early September respectively.

The completion of all three new galleries is scheduled for 2018.
