The Royal Institution is an independent charitydedicated to connecting people with the world of science. Founded in 1799, it established a reputation for brilliant science and excellent lectures, (continuing today with the famous Christmas lecturesfor children). Research has been part of the RI for 200 years and the tradition continues with cutting-edge work on nanotechnology and health science. Over the years the RI has been home to 14 NobelPrize winners and witnessed the discovery of ten chemical elements. The project started with a £36m masterplan drawn up by architect, Sir Terry Farrell, for the rationalisation and reordering of theRoyal Institution buildings. The scheme included major internal reordering to make the layout more logical and allow the building to better lend itself to a diverse range of programmes, exhibitions andactivities. The project involved the widening of public access to a new heritage exhibition and display, providing a new bar/cafe and restaurant, improving the mechanical and electrical infrastructureand creating a new atrium and glass lift, as well as, the refurbishment of Faraday’s original Lecture Theatre.
