wilkinson eyre architects have shared images of their design for the mary rose museum, a maritime institute that combines delicate conservation, contemporary architecture and specialist technical expertise. the museum commemorates 30 years since the hull of the mary rose, a famous tudor ship, was raised from the solent, where the ship structure remained undiscovered for 437 years. the aim of the architecture was to showcase and protect, taking on the role of a supportive tectonic that serves to bolster delicate archaeological finds as well as the overall form of the ship.
