SYSCO COLLABORATES WITH MUSEUM OF LONDON FOLLOWING APPOINTMENT AS THEIR EXHIBITION TECHNOLOGY CONSULTANT FOR THE NEW MUSEUM IN WEST SMITHFIELD
Sysco Productions are delighted to announce that we have been appointed as the exhibition technology consultant for the Museum of London’s move to the new museum in West Smithfield, at the heart of one of the capital’s most historic and creative quarters.
Taking advantage of the site’s rich history as the West Smithfield Market, the Museum of London will utilise many of the market’s existing infrastructure, paying homage to the heritage of the area and grounding itself in the working and trading history of the city. As part of their plans, the museum will take over both the General Market and the Poultry Market Buildings and, alongside architects Stanton Williams and Asif Khan and conservation architect Julian Harap, look to restore and unite the historic fabric of the buildings with atmospheric and engaging spaces.
Each space will be carefully designed with the museum’s core curatorial concept of storytelling through time - the immediacy of real time, the shared experience of our team, the endless fascination of past time, the interrogation of our collections in deep time, the temporary time of changing exhibitions, and the creativity of imagined time. Each space will tell it’s own story and Sysco will work closely with the museum’s curatorial team to bring these time orientated experiences to life, initially collaborating with international design studio ATELIER BRÜCKNER to help shape the design and content for the ‘Past Time’ galleries.
The new museum will also form part of the ‘Culture Mile’, a new home for contemporary culture in the ancient heart of London’s working capital and following approval of plans from the City of London Corporation’s Planning and Transportation Committee is planned to open in 2024.Back to Press Room
