Royal British Columbia Museum Appoints John McAslan + Partners
The Royal BC Museum has appointed the practice, with local support from Merrick Architecture (Victoria, BC), to create a masterplan which will lay the foundation for the renewal of British Columbia's Museum and archives.
The masterplan will identify opportunities inherent within the site and its surroundings, highlighting the physical requirements of a modern museum and archives and the implications of growing visitor expectations.
"This is an important next step for the museum, and we are delighted to be working with John McAslan and Paul Merrick on this exciting project. Their approach is always thoughtful, clear and highly professional. John McAslan has worked on masterplans for Tate Britain, the Royal Academy of Music, Trinity College of Music and Dulwich College. They are also preparing plans for the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, the Burrell Collection, Glasgow, and a new cultural quarter in Doha, Qatar, including the design of four new and restored heritage museums. Their work shows great strength in resolving complicated and often sensitive planning and design issues with creating better use of existing space," said Professor Jack Lohman, Chief Executive Officer of the Royal BC Museum.
