Southbank Centre’s Archive Studio
From October, Southbank Centre will be refurbishing the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery for another generation to enjoy.
This project will also transform Southbank Centre’s public heritage programming and archive management, opening up access to their collections and uniting the story of the Festival Site.
Southbank Centre has commissioned Jonathan Tuckey Design to create their new Archive Studio to be set within the foyer of the Royal Festival Hall.
The Southbank Centre Archive Studio allows The Centre to explore, catalogue and arrange their collection and bring elements of this unique archive to life by making visible the processes of a working archive.
The Studio will allow visitors to see archivists and volunteers at work on the collection and offer the opportunity for the public to engage directly with the archive material and play a part in the presentation and preservation of the collection. As part of the wider festival programme, there will also be regular collections focused events using the archive studio as the hub for this activity.
The studio will become the catalyst for a pioneering public programme to reveal Southbank Centre’s heritage for everyone to enjoy.
Southbank Centre’s Archive Studio will open in October 2015.
