Sammy Ofer Wing – the hoardings come down

And judging from these early pics from Stephen, not nearly as intrusive as I’d feared. Much depends on how they landscape the bit outside – the greener the better in my humble opinion, preferably with at least as much grass as it used to have, even if it can’t be where it was before (I doubt we’ll ever see the tranquility around William IV there used to be). But it could have been a hell of a lot worse. The question now remains – will they bother to put anything inside it, other than a gift shop and a cafe – or just leave it as empty as the rest of the museum?

    I liked the port holes in the hoardings .:-).

    “just leave it as empty as the rest of the museum” . You’ve really got a thing about the NMM haven’t you! Again, I think it’s a great museum with lots to see and do and I’m sure the Samy Ofer wing will enhance it further.

    Perhaps a peace oferwing before they rip up the rest of the park? :)

    Total disappointment inside, rubbish cafe. Huge shop. Massive lift in middle is focal point, what else is there? Minimal content, maximum design ego everywhere. Lovely water feature but runs into drain right opposite entrance, full of leaves and cig butts!
