Creating a home for the Natural History Museum’s plant and insect collections
The £78 million Darwin Centre houses 20 million insect and plant specimens and puts the work of more than 200 scientists on public display, adding 10,000 sq ft to the total size of the museum.
The design provided a metaphor for the museum’s work, protecting the collections to keep them safe for future generations.
The project was undertaken in partnership with the Natural History Museum.
