EXHIBITION ROAD QUARTER – Tristram Hunt and Amanda Levete

Friday 18 May 5:30PM
AT Charleston
Tickets: £16

The historic but dowdy aspect of Exhibition Road, home to our major national museums, has been transformed by the V&A’s new porcelain-tiled courtyard leading down into a vast exhibition space. Instead of howls of protest for tampering with a traditional site, it has been met with praise: “The whole is dynamic and sometimes balletic, its relationship with the old proceeding by contrast and sympathy” (Observer).  RIBA Stirling Prize-winning architect Amanda Levete discusses the vision which inspired the new extension and the gripping stories behind its construction with V&A’s Director, and former politician, Tristram Hunt, who describes his ambitions for the new exhibition spaces.
