The NG200 Project Selection Process
The National Gallery is seeking a multi-disciplinary design team to work with it on a suite of capital projects to mark its bicentenary, its 200th anniversary, with an initial phase to be opened in 2024.
The NG200 Project will enable the National Gallery to redefine its visitor experience – improving the ‘welcome’ the Gallery provides to its millions of visitors so that this lives up to the quality of its collection – considered by many the most perfect in the world.
The design brief focuses on the entrance spaces in the Grade I Listed Sainsbury Wing and also includes the creation of a new Research Centre in the main Wilkins Building, and reimagining the relationship between the Gallery and the public realm.
This two-stage selection process will identify an exceptional design team who can work with the Gallery to develop an architectural vision and conceptual approach to a phased five-year programme of works. The first stage is an open, international call for architect-led, multi-disciplinary design teams to demonstrate their relevant skills and experience.
The deadline for first stage responses is 14:00 GMT Thursday 18 March 2021.
