Museum as Molecule

This was a project for the Holburne Museum in Bath. ‘Museum as the Molecule’ is a response to the theme of connection, which emerged from the comments of over 1000 people who shared their ideas about why museums matter as part of a public consultation. The molecular structure aims to take viewers on a journey through the collection of the museum and uses colours, materials (metals, timbers, stone) and surfaces that reference specific items in the collection. 

The structure is inspired by mid-century scientific molecular models and features a range of materials and techniques, painted balls, gilded metal balls, CNC cut timber, cast stone and resin.
