FuturePlan, as the Materplan was branded, created an intellectual underpinning to the Museum that everyone could understand. It also identified up to 50 smaller projects and recommended a programme for fundraising and delivering them. Since then many of these projects have been rolled out, including – notably – a new courtyard garden and a new Welcome space. This Welcome space has become the stage for the V&A’s renowned opening nights.
Metaphor has completed a further 25 projects supporting the rolling out of FuturePlan.
