Royal College of Surgeons to receive revamp by John McAslan following £2.7m grant

A grant of £2.7m from the Heritage Lottery Fund will enable modernisation works to begin next year on the oldest surgical Royal College in the United Kingdom. The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh was originally designed by William Playfair as a teaching museum and completed in 1832 when it was opened to the public.

Modern redevelopment plans by John McAslan + Partners have adopted the name The Lister Project after College Fellow Joseph Lister and look to create a new visual identity, physical access points and improved orientation throughout the historic building. Work is due to commence in May 2014.

John McAslan details: “New galleries will double the display area, featuring innovative audiovisual and interactive elements. The enhanced Museum will feature a 17th-century dissecting theatre and a new, dedicated education suite, increasing opportunities for schools, families and special interest groups.”
