Context

The London Science Museum lecture theatre was revamped in 2017. Now called the Hans Rausing Lecture Theatre, it was designed by Dow Jones Architects and is a comfortable, modern environment which highlights the original architecture of the space.

Product used

Bench seating from CPS Manufacturing was specified for the project.

Nine rows of bench seating in blue fabric were installed to create stylish seating that would be comfortable for extended periods of sitting during lectures. The bench seating installation features a bespoke front row with 4 individual tip-up seats which are designed for wheelchair users.

Outcome

The 144-capacity lecture theatre is now used extensively for programmed lectures, family shows and a series of newly created adult events and workshops.

The inaugural lecture at the Hans Rausing Lecture Theatre, entitled The World in 2050 and Beyond, was delivered by Astronomer Royal and Science Museum Fellow Lord Martin Rees for an invited audience.
