New courtyard for V&A

In Museum [Insider], Museums, new content on March 28, 2011 at 4:03 pm

Yesterday the Victoria & Albert Museum announced who is going to design the new courtyard they are planning to build. Amanda Levete Architects are the successful studio. It’s going to be a great, iconic space for the V&A – along Exhibition Road – that will also bring together many of the disparate areas of the museum. Being down in the bowels of the building can sometimes be a little confusing, and this will make it all make sense.

The project also includes the construction of a new dedicated temporary exhibition centre underneath the courtyard, which is even more good news for visitors – if you’ve been to a show there recently, you’ll know that it can get a little confusing dipping in and out of that corridor half way through the exhibition space.

There’s an article about all of this and the V&A’s FuturePlan project live now on Museum [Insider].
