The Victoria and Albert Museum has announced the design team for a 31m transformation of its British Galleries.
The team is formed by interior and exhibition designers Dinah Casson and Roger Mann, architect Alistair Gourlay, interior designer David Mlinaric and curatorial consultants John Cornforth, Christopher Gibbs and John Harris.
Designers for other aspects of the project, such as graphics, will be appointed at a later date.
A 23m bid has been made to the Heritage Lottery Fund. The V&A is hoping for a positive response by the end of February. The scope of the project takes in 15 new galleries – ten per cent of the V&A’s entire gallery space.
