Construction Work to Start on The Photographers’ Gallery


LONDON.- The Photographers’ Gallery is creating an iconic new building in the heart of London’s West End. On 19 September 2010, the Gallery will close its doors to the public for a year while we embark on our ambitious development of the building, creating a new, international home for photography in the UK. From October 2010, construction will begin at 16-18 Ramillies Street. Architects O’Donnell + Tuomey’s exciting plans will transform the former Edwardian warehouse into a state-of-the-art photography gallery. The architectural plans include contemporary additions of textured acrylic render, Angelim Pedra hard wood and anthracite coloured terrazzo to elements of the existing structure and fabric of the building. The end result will provide three floors of dedicated public galleries
