Imperial War Museum

Birds Portchmouth Russum as Architects

The Imperial War Museum is conceived as a landscape rising from the site edges juxtaposed with an abstracted ensemble of “dry dock and wharf building’ adjacent to the Manchester Ship Canal. The ensemble reflects the immense power of man and technology this century resulting in an unprecedented scale of war.


The diagonal relationship of the Entrance court and Museum maximises the display and recreational space adjacent to the ship canal.
