Blue Whale at London's Natural History Museum

by The REJIGIT Blog

A twenty five metre Blue Whale skeleton has been suspended from the ceiling of the entrance hall (Hintze Hall) at London‘s Natural History Museum.

Casson Mann, the London based, sixteen strong, environmental design company was founded by Dinah Casson and Roger Mann and this Natural History Museum project is one of the many international projects undertaken by them.

The practice specialises in environmental and exhibition design practice and the delivery of innovative experiential projects across the arts, museum, and hospitality sectors.

Blue Whales were hunted to the brink of extinction in the twentieth century and the Museum has named the female Blue Whale "Hope", as a symbol of humanity’s power to shape a sustainable future.

The white marble plinth below the whale serves as an information point by day and a bar by night.
