Lottery windfall to help make Brisac Gonzalez Aberdeen Art Centre a reality
The Scottish Arts Council, which sanctioned the release of the funds, said the windfall would be the first of three payments that would ‘make the centre a reality’ – the other two coming from Scottish Enterprise Grampian and Aberdeen City Council.
London-based Brisac Gonzalez was chosen for the scheme – which will also re-house the Peacock Visual Arts Centre - following an international OJEU competition that attracted more than 40 entries. It is the practice’s first Scottish project.
The landmark scheme, which will house galleries, printmaking, television and dance studios, workshops and space for music, and venues for film screenings and talks, is expected to be completed by 2010.
