London’s Foundling Museum

London’s Foundling Museum reopens this week, following a £4.2m restoration and refurbishment project. Originally an 18th century home for abandoned children and credited as being London’s first public art gallery, the 1930s Grade II-listed building in Bloomsbury has been renovated by architect Jestico & Whiles. Ralph Appelbaum Associates handled exhibition design, led by director of London operations Phillip Tefft. BBC Symphony Orchestra this week unveils its upcoming season of classical music, with a programme designed by NB Studio. The 16-page programme boasts an abstract cover (far left) that folds out to reveal a French horn emerging from a dark background (left). ‘It gets across a sophisticated, evocative feeling,’ says group creative director Ben Stott. NB Studio is also designing two themed programmes, depicting a bassoon and a violin respectively, plus banners, posters and print ads for the orchestra’s 2004-2005 season. Photography is by Paul Zak. BBC Symphony Orchestra, the BBC’s flagship ensemble, has a particular remit for the commissioning and performance of new music.
