An in-depth showcase of London’s most important and influential cultural building projects undergoing upgrade and transformation. With updates from a range of Central London projects, explore how redevelopment of key cultural institutions can affect and enhance London’s places.
This key London cultural institution continues its transformation through the refurbishment of the 1960s arts venues Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery.
Sited on London’s South Bank, the 1967 National Theatre building has been transformed with thanks to over £80million of donations and grants to provide high quality new foyers, cafes, bars, backstage workshops, learning spaces and renovated theatre spaces.
Royal Academy of Arts
In 2018, in celebration of the 250 year anniversary, the Royal Academy will open up, transforming its historic buildings and inviting the public in. The completed project will include dedicated spaces for exhibitions and displays, a new double-height lecture theatre for debates and expanded space for learning and the RA Schools.
Cromwell Place Gallery
Launching in 2019, Cromwell Place is a new gallery concept, sited in London’s Kensington museum district. A cluster of up to 30 galleries will operate in five listed buildings, with over 35,000 square feet of offices, flexible exhibition spaces, viewing rooms and art storage.
