As part of our 10th birthday celebrations, join one of the gallery’s architects Peter St. John for a talk about the inspiration behind the design of the building, the challenges during its construction and contemporary architecture in Britain today.
Ideal for architecture enthusiasts and all of you who love our building or would like to learn more about it.
Adam Caruso and Peter St John established their practice in 1990, and have gained an international reputation for excellence in designing contemporary projects in the public realm. The practice came to public attention with The New Art Gallery Walsall, a commission won in an international competition in 1995. From these origins in the visual arts, where a sensitivity to experience and context is required, the practice has extended its expertise and now works on a broad range of projects in the public and private realms.
Current clients include Tate Britain, the V&A, English Heritage and the Arts Council of England, as well as european housing developers Trudo, the SBB (Swiss National Railways) and the Gagosian Gallery. Caruso St John aims to have a wide range of work at a variety of scales and want to resist the trend of increased size and specialisation that dominates contemporary architecture.
