M Shed

A new approach for a social history museum that embodies the evolving nature of cities. An old warehouse situated on the floating harbour, changed use from an industrial museum to a storehouse of memories. It places the audience at the centre of the proposition inviting them to add their content. The notion of flattening time puts the historical collection into perspective alongside contemporary stories. Three galleries reveal stories of the transforming place, activities and communities of Bristol. As the lead designer I developed the interpretive planning from masterplan through concept and scheme to on-site installation.
