Exhibitionists sought for Belgian centre

Exhibition designer John Sunderland is looking for designers to work on Belgium’s European Archaeological Interpretation Centre of Man.

Sunderland is project designer for the scheme and is putting together a team of up to 12 European designers to work on the project, entitled Ename 974.

The planned centre aims to tell the story of ordinary people over the past 1000 years in a village around 70 miles from the Belgian capital, Brussels.

The centre will be housed in a new 280m2 building, and will include a 50-seater theatre and virtual reality stations.

Ename 974 also includes the Binnen Museum, designed by Sunderland, scheduled to be completed by Easter 1997.

The local government of East Flanders is expecting to raise all the funds for the interpretation centre from other European Community countries and is planning to hold an architectural competition for the new building, says Sunderland.
