Vicky Richardson, Director of Architecture, design and fashion at the British Council said of our MUDE project:

‘The proposal from Carl Turner Architects was selected for its carefully considered and well resolved response to our brief. CTA were professional and ambitious, they showed enthusiasm throughout the planning and build stages, as well as being responsive to guidance from us and the museum’s director. It was well built, playful and intelligent.’
