The Riverside Museum demonstrates brilliantly how a specialist transport collection can renew its relevance through active engagement with wider social and universal issues. The EMYA 2013 Judging Panel agreed unanimously that the museum fulfils the EMYA criteria of ‘public quality’ at the highest level.
The winner of the best Permanent Exhibition at the 2013 Museums Heritage Awards was awarded to Pringle Richards Sharratt Architects and GUM Design this week. The lighting for the gallery was designed by DHA Design, including a daylight study to allow glimpses of the outside world from inside the gallery.
DHA was delighted to be involved with many of the shortlisted schemes in the recent Museum and Heritage Awards.
In the Permanent Exhibition category, DHA were lighting consultants to the winning National Museum of Scotland scheme in Edinburgh, and also shortlisted for both Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter and Riverside Museum, Glasgow
In the Temporary or Touring Category, DHA were again the consultants for the winning project: Sexual Nature at NHM, and also Highly Commended for Dickens in London, MoL.
Congratulations to our museum colleagues for their hard work on all of the shortlisted projects!
