Gallery visitors will vote for winner
The shortlisted designs for next year’s Dulwich Pavilion have been released today.
Six emerging practices have been picked to vie for the prize of seeing their proposal built in the grounds of John Soane’s Dulwich Picture Gallery.
They are Casswell Bank Architects, e10 Studio, Flea Folly Architects, Pricegore with the artist Yinka Ilori, Projects Office, and Pup Architects.
Their models and visualisations go on display today in the museum’s glass gallery – designed by the late Rick Mather – and the public will be invited to vote for their favourite. The display will also include the model for If-Do’s winning design for the first pavilion last year. The exhibition ends on July 22.
The shortlist was chosen from 150 entries by a panel including Mary Duggan, Al Scott of If_Do, Tom Dyckhoff and former BD architecture critic Oliver Wainwright.
The winner will be chosen by combining the judges’ and public’s votes and will be built for next year’s London Festival of Architecture.
Jennifer Scott, the Sackler director of Dulwich Picture Gallery, said: “As the world’s first gallery that was built specifically to bring art to the public, it is hugely important to us that our visitors have a say in our 2019 pavilion.
“Even Sir John Soane presented eight designs for the gallery before winning agreement on the final building. We are thrilled to have such a wide range of inspiring architects in the running, each bringing a unique take on the brief.”
