Specialist conservation work for the Cutty Sark from the genius of Grimshaw Architects
A few words from Isabella:
Grimshaw Architect’s innovative design raised the Cutty Sark within the dry berth, providing additional and captivating space for visitors under her revolutionary hull. The supporting structure cradles the raised ship’s hull, allowing visitors to view the ship from its underside. There is an enveloping glass canopy that is attached along the ship's waterline, permitting year-round protection to visitors. This air-conditioned, accessible space was perfect for the British Business Club's networking event that I attended on 3rd August 2012. I feel back in the flow with my lyrics now, after taking a deeper meaning from walking most of the length of the underside of the hull. I'd like to return and walk the whole length as I step more purposely towards making art and sharing constructive news.
The Cutty Sark may be pooped at Greenwich, but on a creative level she sails!!
Why not visit the Cutty Sark? to learn more about her unique story and the gift from the Duke of Edinburgh for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
