Diller Scofidio & Renfro wins V&A's collections centre job

Here East

Firm, which teamed up with Austin-Smith Lord, chosen for its ’clarity, ambition and originality’

The V&A has appointed a team from New York-based architect Diller Scofidio & Renfro (DS&R) together with Austin-Smith Lord to lead the design of a new Collection and Research Centre, part of the museum’s Here East in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The archive centre will extend access to thousands of objects from the V&A’s collections of art, design and performance not currently on display.

DS&R is known for its work on the High Line, the elevated railway-turned public park on the west side of Manhattan and the design job on the planned new London Symphony hall, currently the home of the Museum of London.
