Architect Zaha Hadid’s first major public commission to open in the UK, the Museum welcomed over 2 million visitors in its first sixteen months of opening.

dormakaba’s contribution to the project
Appointed to supply a range of complex exhibition systems, fit-out specialists Mivan turned to dormakaba for the internal door specifications. dormakaba glass patch fittings, profiles, rails, handles, floor springs and automatic swing doors were chosen to provide safe and reliable operation every time.
