Carmody Groarke designs Glyndebourne art pavilion

  • Comment

The winners of this year’s AJ Small Projects Award Carmody Groarke has revealed plans for this temporary art gallery at Glyndebourne in East Sussex

Due to open on 21 May as part of the Glyndebourne Festival 2015, the pop-up structure will host a programme of contemporary visual art events curated by White Cube.

The ‘simple and bold’ pavilion will house work by German artist Georg Baselitz and features a 10m x 8m gallery space which ‘supports a large external canopy structure’.

According to the practice, this sheltered area ‘makes a strong physical and visual connection between the internal exhibition room and the surrounding gardens, lake and landscape beyond’.

White Cube at Glyndebourne will remain in place in the gardens throughout the summer-long festival.

In 1994 Hopkins Architects completed Glyndebourne’s 1,200 seat brick opera house - a competition-winning project with a ‘traditional, intimate horseshoe form’.
