This award-winning project was designed by Panter Hudspith Architects after winning a RIBA competition for the design of a new archaeological and art museum in the centre of Lincoln. The design was based on continuous consultation with English Heritage and CABE in order to respond to Lincoln's historical centre. The building was designed for someone to enjoy spectacular views of both the Lincoln Cathedral and the Usher Gallery. The stone blocks of the external fabric (Lincolnshire limestone) were carefully selected to fit with the historical background. The rough exposed concrete board finish and the extent use of timber create an intellectual narrative with the past, denoting the basic human inhabitation forms and materials. The building is split into two volumes; the main museum, and the café and auditorium. These two volumes are linked with a glass bridge. The courtyard formed between the two volumes allows for summer activities and creates a new public space for the area.
