Description: The World Conservation & Exhibitions Centre (WCEC) is a £135 million project to provide 17,000 square metres of space within the Museum for exhibitions, conservation, scientific research, logistics and storage. It has been designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. The WCEC will ensure the Museum maintains its position as a leading institution for the study of human culture, in London, the United Kingdom and the World. Through an upgrade of key facilities, the development will address urgent needs in terms of the BM’s infrastructure and will provide a new exhibition space, state-of-the-art conservation and science laboratories and studios, world-class accommodation for the study collection, as well as facilities to support the BM’s extensive UK and international loan programmes. It will allow the BM to enhance the visitor and exhibition experience, lend more artefacts and most importantly continue to preserve the collection for future generations.
