National Army Museum earned two awards at the 2018 Civic Trust Awards.
Congratulations to the National Army Museum on winning a Commendation at this year’s Civic Trust Awards! The Museum also earned the prestigious Selwyn Goldsmith Award which specifically celebrates projects that exemplify the principles of excellent universal design.
Iain McKinnon, Director of Inclusive Design at the Global Disability Innovation Hub and Member of the Selwyn Goldsmith Award Judging Panel had this to say about the re-envisioned Museum:
“The National Army Museum demonstrates what can be achieved when refurbishing an existing building. Inclusive design was clearly at the forefront of the rationale to make the Museum a more welcoming, inviting and user friendly place. The result is a public venue that offers an equally amazing museum experience for all visitors regardless of ability or age.”
In 2011 Event was appointed to deliver a Masterplan for its complete renewal. In 2012 Event was re-appointed to design and manage the delivery of the new Museum. The redesign has proved a transformative measure, redefining and fundamentally altering the Museum and its relationship with the public.
