V&A/RIBA gallery gets under way

  • Comment

Work has started on Gareth Hoskins Architects' £5.3 million V&A/RIBA Architecture Gallery in South Kensington.

The new gallery is due to open in November 2004 and will display collections of architectural drawings, models and objects of the RIBA and the V&A.

The works will run parallel with Wright & Wright's study rooms and specialist storage facilities in the Henry Cole wing at the V&A. The study rooms will allow the public to view the entire archives in an easily accessible way.

The new Architecture Gallery will include a general introduction to architecture as well as thematic displays, educational interactive areas and a space for three temporary exhibitions each year.

The gallery will be situated near the main entrance of the V&A and will be the only permanent gallery in the UK dedicated to architectural documents and drawings.
