The Architecture

IWM North
The building

IWM North is housed in a striking, aluminium clad building – the first in the UK to be designed by internationally acclaimed architect Daniel Libeskind.

Libeskind created the building to enhance the museum’s subject matter - the sharp angles, sloping floors, leaning walls and imposing exterior are deliberately in place to unsettle and disorientate you, intensifying the collections and stories within.
