Amanda Levete Architects
Amanda Levete Architects has won the commission for the V&A’s Exhibition Road project from a very strong shortlist selected from an international pool of 110 practices who entered the design competition run by MRC.
Paul Ruddock, Chairman of the V&A Board of Trustees said;
‘This new development will transform the way the V&A is able to present its major exhibitions and will enable us to reveal and restore the magnificent south courts. Amanda Levete Architects’ proposal will create a wonderful new space that cleverly combines the elegance of the V&A’s Grade l listed buildings with contemporary design.’
ALA will now work with the V&A to develop a more detailed design. The project – which will create new galleries, a public courtyard for installations and events and a new entrance from the newly landscaped Exhibition Road – is expected to take five years from the design stage to completion and has a total budget of £35m.
