Official EU reference: 167837-2014

Procurer reference: SCM0451M

Published on: 20/05/2014

Deadline date:16/06/2014

Location where the contract is to be carried out: London

Name of the buying organisation: SCIENCE MUSEUM GROUP

Summary of the contract
Interactive Gallery Project.
The Science Museum’s new permanent interactive gallery will engage people
with the drama and spectacle of science and maths, making sense of
scientific phenomena and drawing on the sense of awe and wonder they
create. The space will be sophisticated, welcoming, thought-provoking and
inspiring for adults as well as children.
The new gallery will be more than double the size of the existing space
and include new exhibits and large scale, immersive experiences, enabling
significantly more people to get excited about science, and deepen their
understanding and challenge their perceptions of it. Scientific marvels
will be beautifully expressed, communicating our enthusiasm and sense of
excitement for science.
The gallery will provide more opportunities and support for in-depth,
focused exploration and experimentation, with a broader range of content
including mathematics and earth and space sections. The exhibits will
clearly link science and mathematical principles to the real world and to
the Museum’s collections, and there will be better equipped, more
comfortable and flexible spaces for a wider range of live events.
The Museum is looking to appoint an architect to create the groundbreaking
new interactive gallery. The architect, also acting as Lead Designer, will
be required to collaborate and coordinate with individual exhibit
designers and artists as well as the rest of the design team. This role is
crucial to the development of a coherent, sophisticated yet practical
design across the gallery and the circa 70 separate exhibits. As well as
the refurbishment of circa 2,800 m², which will include circulation space,
commercial areas and visitor facilities in addition to the interactive
gallery, it is anticipated that this project will also include some
internal structural interventions in order to open up space within the
identified gallery location.
