Neal Potter has been involved in many masterplanning exercises for new or redeveloping museums and attractions including:
The Bentley Priory Battle of Britain Trust commissioned Neal Potter to work with architects and developers to create a master plan to show how Bentley Priory (the home of RAF Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain) could be converted to a heritage attraction as the surrounding area was sold off for commercial housing development (2008).
Bletchley Park is where, in total secrecy, the German enigma code
was broken during WW2. The work of these code breakers is said
to have shortened the war by many years. It is also the home to
Colossus the world's first computer. Neal Potter created a masterplan
in 2007 to show how the original 'enigma' huts could be converted
into a public exhibition.
Museum of Edinburgh
In 2004, working as part of a larger team of consultants Neal Potter provided the content masterplan for a proposed
re- development of the Museum of Edinburgh.
The Museum in DocklandsLondon, UK
The Experience Museum Project (EMP)
During 1997 Neal worked alongside Frank Gehry Atchitects and the EMP curatorial team to establish a masterplan for this major new attraction. The detail design was undertaken by local designers.
The Centenary of Flight Hall
Royal Air Force Museum, Hendon, London, UK
Neal Potter was asked to provide the exhibition masterplan for the new building to celebrate the centenary of flight in 2002. Key to the masterplan was the decision to make a Spitfire aircraft the dominant feature of the entrance - displayed as if a work of art at the entrance to the exhibition. The detailed design was carried out by the in-house team.
