Inscription

{Inscription on the glass frontage:}
A plaster cast of Darwin was relocated from this window when the Grant Museum of Zoology was moved over the road.
Institute of Making members were challenged to create a new Darwin in any form or medium using data from a 3D laser scan of the original bust. This full sized resin version was milled using the massive robot arm "La Toyah" at B-Made, the CADCAM lab at the Bartlett.

This website gives more detailed information about the creation of the bust.

In 2011, the Grant Museum moved from its previous location in the Darwin Building, Gower Street, to the Thomas Lewis Room in the Rockefeller Building, University Street, formerly the UCL Medical School library.

Site: Charles Darwin - bust (1 memorial)

WC1, Gower Street, UCL Biological Sciences Building
