Rotunda Museum, Scarborough

TEP was commissioned to design and implement the landscape surrounding the Grade II* Listed, Rotunda Museum in Scarborough. The Rotunda Museum was opened in 1829, and is one of the earliest purpose built museums in the United Kingdom. This HLF funded project provides a centre of geology for the region, celebrating the work of William Smith, ‘Father of English Geology’ and providing a gateway to the ‘Cultural Quarter’ and the geological heritage of the Yorkshire Dinosaur Coast. Hardscape’s involvement centred around the supply of natural materials and expert consultation of the landscaped areas that revolve around the geological interpretation to mimic strata and faults and varied aggregate sizes within the footpaths.
