BDP wins coverage in lottery showcase at Tate

Four schemes chosen to highlight the diversity of Millenium Commission projects

BDP has struck lucky in an exhibition of projects funded by the National Lottery at Tate Modern. Four schemes by the multidisciplinary firm were chosen for the three-week show highlighting the diversity of Millennium Commission projects and celebrate its 10th anniversary. Some 40 projects are featured in the show in the former turbine hall near Blackfriers in London. The commission reckons far too few people know enough about the fruits of its work, which include some of the country’s most highly acclaimed landscape architecture and buildings. Images of the Renaissance of Whitehaven, a harbour regeneration design, and Glasgow Science Centre, the titanium-clad block and landscape, are two BDP schemes featured in the exhibition. The other two projects are Manchester Millennium Quarter and The Deep, a shard-like glazed museum of the sea in Hull project managed by BDP. “Not enough people know where their lottery money has gone,” said Mike O’Connor, director of the Millennium Commission. “Many of these schemes are on people’s doorsteps and we estimate on average everyone lives only 30 miles from a Millennium Commission project.” The exhibition, called Out of Time, runs at the Bankside gallery until 19 December (contact 020 7887 8000 or visit www.tate.org.uk).
