London’s Science Museum has selected muf architecture/art to design a new permanent interactive gallery. Set to open in 2016, the new gallery will be an expansion of the current Launchpad children’s gallery, creating a larger area to engage visitors in interactive math and science exhibits and live events.

“Muf architecture/art impressed us with their collaborative approach, strong design and bold vision for the new gallery. Above all, their scheme shows a keen awareness of the prime purpose of the gallery – fostering exploration and curiosity in science through intelligent and exciting design,” Karen Livingstone, Director of Masterplan at the Science Museum said.

The new gallery is part of the Museum’s Masterplan, which consists of updating a third of the Museum’s galleries over the next five years. As part of the masterplan, the Museum has already selected Wilkinson Eyre to design the Medical Galleries and Coffey Architects to design a new research center. The winner of the competition to design the Mathematics Gallery has yet to be announced, although six firms have been shortlisted

The spatial layout of exhibits will make connections between different phenomena and theories. Activities within the gallery will influence spaces elsewhere in the museum. . Image Courtesy of muf architecture/art LLP
