A talk by Moira Gemmill, Director of V&A’s FuturePlan
Working with the best architects and designers, both new and emerging as well as experienced and established practices, FuturePlan’s mission is to restore contemporary design innovation into the heart of the museum.
FuturePlan Phase 1 (2000- 2009) is now complete. 70% of the museum has been revitalised over the 10 year period at a cost of £120 million. FuturePlan Phase 2 (2010 – 2019) is already underway and includes ambitious restoration and new-build plans for the South Kensington site as well as extending V&A’s presence beyond London.
Moira graduated from Glasgow School of Art in the 80s. After several years in publishing she began her career in the cultural sector by joining Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museums as an Exhibitions Officer. She took up the post of Head of Exhibitions and Design at the Museum of London in 1998 and then moved to the V&A in 2002 where she is now Director of V&A’s FuturePlan.
