Victoria & Albert Museum: Exhibition Road Galleries Design Study | London

London, UK


Invited to present concept designs for a hypothetical redevelopment of the V&Aʼs Boilerhouse Yard. The designs, comprising architectural models and plans are asked to respond to a brief to create temporary exhibition space below ground and a courtyard at street level off Exhibition Road.

At the urban level, a continuous carpet links Exhibition Road, Boilerhouse Yard and Madejski Gardens. A “sandwich” floor with a domed construction, below the yard reconciles the various level of the buildings that surround the Boiler House Yard whilst accommodating the peripheral spaces and services to the temporary exhibition below.

Four Spiral stairs and lift at key points provide strategic vertical links and flexibilities to all spaces, interior and exterior with the primary entrance to the temporary exhibition through the Western Range linking into the main route through the V&A.
