Dulwich Picture
Gallery, London, UK

RIBA competition entry for an extension to Sir John Soane’s listed C19 art gallery at Dulwich to provide support facilities such as café, lecture room and bookshop etc. 

A new public space is created - a grass hollow amphitheatre in the park which is transected by a new pedestrian route linking 2 roads. Using the route, the public participate in the life of the gallery and are encouraged to explore the artworks further.

The grass hollow is entered – a space where we cannot escape ourselves, where we are bound only by Nature.

The building belongs to Nature. We belong to Nature.
