The Crichton Trust hopes to create a world-renowned home and destination for innovation - somewhere for people to come together and share ideas, inspired by The Crichton's history, places and spaces.
To replace Merrick, the former hospital laundry, which commands a prominent and strategic position within The Crichton and replace it with a high quality inspiring new building as a centre for reflection, research and wellbeing with a specialism of international significance in arts and wellbeing.
The new building - provisionally titled The Crichton Project for Memory and Wellbeing - will contain exhibition and archive facilities to house the Crichton Archive, and the Crichton Heritage Centre: enhancing people's understanding of the Crichton's 180 year heritage and innovation in the provision of mental health care. The building will also bring together a new visual arts and exhibition space, an intergenerational academic library, and a regional art and land archives and research centre.
We envisage the new build to be an architecturally significant building, carbon neutral (or better) and one which is as much a piece of art and wellbeing in the landscape as the art it will seek to celebrate, research and reflect.
