Black Cultural Archives

Forza worked directly with client and consultant architects Pringle Richards Sharratt to provide  multi-purpose and flexible  furniture within a tight budget for all areas for the new permanent home of the BCA which serves as place to bring together objects, documents, publications and oral histories of the black people of Britain over centuries, and, as the BCA director Paul Reid says, enable the black community to tell its own stories and its own history in its own voice for the first time.

The building has to function as an archive, gallery  teaching and public facility.

The furniture supplied was used for offices and administration staff, library, teaching  meeting room spaces and for a public  café both interior and exterior.

Ranges used come from Fantoni, Arper, Pedrali, Wiesner Hager, Interstuhl.
