Natural History Museum Scheme, London, UK
Proposals to transform the surroundings of the Natural History Museum, London, have been lodged with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
Architect Alfred Waterhouse’s building is a visual essay of the intellectual landscape of its day. Commissioned by the naturalist Richard Owen, who disagreed with Darwin that a creature could move from one phylum to another as part of the process of Natural Selection, the skeletal gothic structure teems with wildlife divided into separate species, as a counter to Darwin’s ideas of transmutation. We enjoy the paradox of a monument to a discredited premise embedded in the city, reports Níall McLaughlin Architects. It speaks of the diversity and complexity of the natural world and the fluid landscape of scientific research of which the museum is a global leader.
Our proposal incorporates a new public garden square at the corner of Exhibition Road and Cromwell Road, with a campanile, announcing the presence of the museum at this important junction. The base of the tower forms a new entrance to the museum that is accessed directly from the tunnel connecting back to the tube station. A new east-west promenade within the railings enclosing the museum re-instates the view of Waterhouse’s beautifully zoomorphic south facade, with a contemporary urban garden exploring ‘future nature’ laid out at the western end. We intend that the east-west sequence story, from geology and paleontology through to future nature, encapsulated within the museum, will now be given public expression in the newly configured gardens of the exterior setting.

RIBA Awards 2012 winner
The demolition of the Radcliffe Infirmary exposed a long blank façade as the college had long turned its back on the hospital. An exchange of land allowed a development on this edge site containing new student rooms thus meaning the college can re-orientate its grounds towards a new Humanities faculty. Just six metres deep by 175 metres long the site is just big enough for a row of rooms with a connecting corridor. Externally it creates one side of a new, yet to be completed street.
