Project Details



MET Studio was commissioned to design the National Army Museum's 'Modern Army' gallery, which focuses on key international conflicts as well as debating domestic issues and questions relating to the modern military.


From Northern Ireland and the Falklands to Iraq and Afghanistan, the exhibition explores over three decades of conflict, examining the role of the British Army across the globe and the impact being a serviceman or woman has on the life of a soldier.

For absolute authenticity MET used personal accounts, past and present, from servicemen and women and civilians, alongside exclusive images and objects from individuals and the Museum's collections.


'I am writing to thank you for all of the work MET Studio has done in creating a concept and brand for our gallery Conflicts of Interest. Your team worked successfully to our tight deadlines, producing a concept that entirely fulfilled its brief, and which we were able to realise using our in house resources following your handover; we now have a gallery that is contemporary visually stunning and has the capacity to evolve. Needless to say (especially given that conflicts has now been nominated for the Art Prize Fund), we are thrilled with the result' (Mairead O'Hara - Curator at National Army Museum)
