On 19 May 2012 The Photographers’ Gallery will unveil a new home for international and British photography in London.
”Construction started in Autumn 2010 on the transformation of our building on Ramillies Street, London. Designed by award-winning Irish architects O’Donnell + Tuomey, the building features three dedicated floors of gallery spaces. This 100% increase in exhibition space will allow the Gallery to showcase established and high-profile artists alongside emerging photographic talent from around the world.
Situated at the heart of the building between the two main exhibition spaces is the education floor. Placing an emphasis on the Gallery’s outreach activities, this floor will feature a busy schedule of talks, workshops and events.
Complementing the exhibition and education floors will be the new spaces for the Bookshop, Print Sales Room and Café, creating a lively meeting place at street level.”
