Visitors to the Museum will soon enjoy revitalised gardens surrounding the buildings.
Five teams of architects have been shortlisted from a competition to re-imagine the Museum's ground.
The grounds surrounding Museum's buildings such as the grade I-listed Waterhouse building play an important part in how visitors experience the Museum.
The Civic Realm Competition will create an innovative and visually stunning outdoor setting around the Museum's buildings that will accommodate the different activities of our visitors.
The project will completely redesign the Museum’s extensive gardens as well as access ways to and from the buildings to improve the experience of visitors to the Museum.
The competition is being run in partnership with Malcolm Reading Consultants and Deloitte.
In line with European Union procurement guidelines (OJEU), the competition process consists of two stages.
Chosen by a jury, the winning team will be announced in April 2014.
