The Museum of London has unveiled the design for their new West Smithfield home. Designed by Stanton Williams, Asif Khan, and Julian Harrap Architects, the plans showcase the transformation of a campus of beautiful yet dilapidated market buildings into a 24-hour cultural destination. The scheme celebrates the historic buildings of West Smithfield, while creating a unique, memorable visitor experience. The museum will make use of the historic buildings both above and below ground, exhibiting everything from fashion to fatbergs. The plans would also see the museum becoming a world-class center for learning, and fulfill the museum’s ambition to reach every London child. Reflecting its Farringdon surroundings, the museum will increase its nighttime offer, playing a major role in the capital’s nighttime economy.
