AE Interests: Museum built to host the hull of Henry VIII’s warship, designed from the inside-out to accommodate the environmental conditions needed in order to preserve the hull, the structure is like a jewel box with its most precious contents protected inside, [a] interior is completely dark with light only concentrated on objects on display and under walkway handrails, re-creates a claustrophobic atmosphere of the lower deck of a ship.
