Sysco Joins Forces with Imperial War Museums to Deliver Phase 2 of their Transforming IWM London Project
We are proud to announce that we have been successfully appointed as the audiovisual partner for Phase 2 of Imperial War Museums’ Transforming IWM London project. Having previously supported the AV delivery of the award winning First World War Galleries in 2014, we are delighted to once again be collaborating on the museum’s forthcoming transformation.
The dramatic and innovative new exhibitions will draw focus to the Second World War and the Holocaust, both pivotal events of the twentieth century that unleashed violence, death and destruction on a scale never before experienced. The breadth and scope of these powerful events will occupy a greater platform within the museum, offering a rigorous new interpretation for the 21st century. These new galleries aim to significantly improve visitor knowledge and understanding of these historic events, making over 1,500 objects available to the public, and increasing the digital content of these galleries by 50%.
On Level 1, the dedicated Second World War Galleries designed by Ralph Appelbaum Associates will double the space previously devoted to the Second World War, and will open up spaces currently unavailable to the public. The newly expanded Holocaust Galleries on Level 2 designed by Casson Mann, will connect the narrative both architecturally and conceptually to the Second World War interpretation. Additionally, digitally-enabled learning areas on both levels will directly link to these new galleries, and facilitate different types of learning environments ranging from small study rooms to large multi-purpose areas which can be used by a range of groups and audiences.
Appointed as the Project, Design & Cost Managers for this project, Fraser Randall will be working closely with Imperial War Museums to successfully deliver this project. Sysco Productions will be supporting the audiovisual integration, helping bring to life the chronicles and events that unfolded during this historical timeline using audio, projection and creative constructs.
Scheduled to open to the public by Spring 2021, these new galleries will engage contemporary audiences and future generations with the Second World War and the Holocaust, demonstrating how the legacy of these events laid the foundations of the world we live in today.
