. . . as V&A plans RIBA open access architecture gallery

  • Comment

The RIBA is planning to create a high profile 'Architecture for All' gallery at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

The £1 million gallery will play host to a permanent exhibition introducing architecture to the public, temporary exhibitions on specific architects using material from the extensive architecture collections of the RIBA and the V&A, as well as an educational area for school parties.

The gallery is a last-minute addition to plans to unite the drawing collections of the two institutions in the V&A's Henry Cole Wing (AJ 7.12.00), and will be funded jointly by a Heritage Lottery Fund grant and a private donor, according to RIBA project manager, Baz Dickson. But the plans will delay the Henry Cole Wing scheme by about six months because both must be subject to the same Lottery application, which will now be made in July.
