Lapworth Museum shortlisted for ‘Museum of the Year’

We’re very happy to hear that our £2.7m renovation of the Lapworth Museum of Geology at the University of Birmingham has been shortlisted for Art Fund ‘Museum of the Year’ 2017. Also in the shortlist is the Hepworth Wakefield and the Tate Modern, so some stiff competition to contend with.

The Museum is housed in the Grade II* listed Aston Webb building at the university, where the revamp has seen visitor numbers rise from 20,000 to 50,000 a year.

Richard Perry, director said:

“It has been a fantastically rewarding project to be involved with.

A shared vision with the university and wider team has been key to its success, blending contemporary design with a historically sensitive listed building to create a museum fit for the future.”

We look forward to hearing the results on the 5th July.
