Turner Prize-winning architectural collective will create space for ‘meaning of life’ exhibition
Turner Prize-winning architects collective Assemble has been appointed to design a new gallery at the Wellcome Collection in central London.
The gallery, which has housed the Medicine Now exhibition for the past 12 years, will close in April and re-open in September with a permanent display exploring “trust, identity and health in a changing world”, according to Clare Barlow, the collection’s project curator.
Located at the heart of the Euston Road building, it will explore “what it means to be human in the 21st century, from our hopes and fears about new forms of medical knowledge, our perceptions of ourselves and each other, and our impact on the environment”, she added.
