JMP’s John McAslan and Troy Uleman will be speaking at Sydney's National Art School next Tuesday 21 June on ‘Conserving culture: adapting old building for new audiences.’ John and Troy will share their experience on adapting older and heritage buildings to meet contemporary audience and user needs, with a spotlight on the recently complete Burrell Collection in Glasgow.
JMP was architect and landscape designer for the restoration and modernisation of the Grade-A listed Burrell Collection, which contains some 9,000 internationally significant medieval, Islamic, Chinese, Egyptian and French Impressionist works of art. Opened in March this year after a five-year revitalisation project, the landmark 1983 building has been sensitively transformed to display more of the collection and better serve the museum and its visitors.
