Topotek chosen to embelish Libeskind's Imperial War Museum 

The multi-award winning Imperial War Museum North (IWMN) has selected Topotek I as the preferred design team to develop the external spaces of the Museum following a RIBA international design competition and public consultation with visitors and key partners.

The Museum, designed by Daniel Libeskind and completed in 2002 is split into three conjoined buildings shaped as shards from a broken globes as 'an iconic emblem of conflict'.

The designs shown for the external spaces are initial concepts and IWMN will now begin the task of fundraising and seeking partners to help realise the project. Once funding has been secured, Topotek I will work closely with the Museum to develop the ideas and create the final scheme. The first phase of development of the outside areas is aimed at completion to coincide with the opening of MediaCity:UK in 2011
