World Conservation and Exhibitions Center: Planning Permission Granted
The building will ensure the British Museum remains one of the world’s leading museums, a civic space serving a local, national and international audience.
LONDON.- The Trustees of the British Museum announced that Camden Council has given planning permission for the World Conservation and Exhibitions Centre. The building will ensure the British Museum can meet its fundamental obligations of preserving, researching, displaying and lending this unparalleled collection for future generations. The building will ensure the British Museum remains one of the world’s leading museums, a civic space serving a local, national and international audience.

The Museum would like to express its thanks to all those who have supported the project, from English Heritage to Cabe to architectural professionals, to community groups to Camden residents and many others.

We hope to commence work in January 2010 with a proposed completion in 2013. The funding for the scheme is well underway with £92 million of the total cost of £135million already secured. The building is designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners.
