BIG, Grant Associates, Niall McLaughlin Architects, LUC and Stanton Williams for Natural History Museum

A competition shortlist has been announced for the development of the grounds of the Natural History Museum in South Kensington, London. The Natural History Museum was opened in 1880 to a design by British architect Albert Waterhouse however the original plans for the surrounding grounds were never seen through to completion.

The competition, hosted by Malcolm Reading Consultants, is part of an ongoing renewal project at the museum. The competition was posted by WAN's Business Information - click here to view the brief.

The five shortlisted teams are led by:

Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) with Martha Schwartz Partners
Grant Associates with Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios
Niall McLaughlin Architects with Kim Wilkie
Land Use Consultants (LUC) with Design Engine
Stanton Williams Architects with Bradley-Hole Schoenaich Landscape Architects

Malcolm Reading, Architect and competition organiser commented: “The list reflects the diversity of interest generated by the competition. The brief for the design stage is challenging and combines the redevelopment of the current landscape with ambitions to re-energise visitor engagement - so we were looking for teams with the breadth of expertise to deliver an integrated response.

"The Museum is one of the world’s great institutions and we have a shortlist of designers of world-class status and capability.”
