War Rooms may need designers

Exhibition design work may be up for grabs in about 18 months at the Cabinet War Rooms in London, which are being renovated by architect HOK International.

HOK is creating a museum of Winston Churchill’s life to open by 2005. It coincides with the 60th anniversary of VE Day and the 40th anniversary of Churchill’s death.

HOK vice president and director of conservation Neil Cooke says the group has not decided whether to use external designers or in-house teams for the museum’s interiors or exhibition display work. Any decision is several months off, he adds.

HOK has not decided whether to create a separate logo for the museum but it is ‘unlikely’, says Cooke, as it will remain accessible via the Cabinet War Rooms.
