Wolverhampton Art Gallery
This scheme for a proposed £6.5 million extension of the Wolverhampton Art Gallery by Niall Phillips Architects has been submitted for planning permission. The project, which is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Advantage West Midlands, is designed to house the museum's nationally significant Pop Art collection. The practice has been working with former Turner Prize nominee Simon Patterson to create a spectacular work of art that could be incorporated into the facade and louvres of the new extension. The artwork consists of an elevational screen of 390 electronically operated laminated glass louvres, set over a terracotta facade, which will be printed with sequential images of phases of the moon.
