"FuturePlan" for the Victoria and Albert Museum

The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) is one of the world’s most important museums for design and craftworks. A total of 145 rooms are spread over 45,000 m² of exhibition space containing around four million works. In 2001 the museum started its ‘Future Plan’ initiative, a programme to renovate the west London location that has been in use for around 150 years. The work includes the reconfiguration of numerous galleries as well as a café and garden, entrance access, the management system and educational rooms.
