RIBA London Great British Buildings Tour - The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries

As part of the Great British Buildings series showcasing 2019's RIBA Award winners, MUMA are giving a tour of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries.

Join us for an exclusive opportunity to hear more about this RIBA Award winning building from the architects who designed it.

As part of this series of events showcasing 2019's Award winners, MUMA are giving a tour of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries.

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries are the first major built addition to Westminster Abbey in more than 250 years. Created within the Triforium located seven storeys above the abbey's nave, they not only provide space for display but the most astonishing views of the interior.

The gallery has been designed with subtlety and skill, to create an exhibition space that puts the most important artefact — the abbey itself - centre stage. Within this special context, MUMA have considered it essential that the creation of a modern museum display; the technology of display, environmental control, light control, lighting, interpretation and showcases, should not undermine the quality of this space. Successful projects often need open-minded clients, and in Westminster Abbey, MUMA have found a patron with the foresight and ambition to commission them to both design and curate the exhibition- bravo!

This scheme has won RIBA London Award 2019 and RIBA National Award 2019.

This event is part of our Great British Buildings series of talks and tours around the country.
