East End Women’s Museum

Set to open in Barking in 2022, this new museum will be the only dedicated women’s museum in England. It will play host to exhibitions, events, schools sessions and community group workshops; recording, sharing and celebrating women’s stories and voices from East London’s history.

The museum will be an inclusive and responsive space for the diverse community it represents. We’re proud to be part of a uniquely collaborative woman-led team. The project is an important opportunity to empower and promote women in architecture and the broader construction industry.

These visuals show our initial concepts, which seek to test opportunities in the new space. The principles of gathering of people and knowledge, flexibility to adapt over time and storytelling are all at the heart of the project.
