V&A Exhibition Road QuarterA new purpose-built underground gallery, magnificent courtyard space and a new entrance from Exhibition Road on the west side of the Victoria and Albert Museum are part of a £48 million redevelopment of the V&A, one of London's most important cultural institutions. Open from 2017, the scheme transformed a previously inaccessible back-of-house space into an open courtyard for installations, events and a cafe, revising the existing screen by Sir Aston Webb - "the most controversial part of the plan" (Financial Times) - the man who designed the museum's main building in 1891. The project also reveals the beautiful Victorian facades on the west side of the V&A's Grade 1 listed buildings which have been restored but never on public view before. Amanda Levete Architects, AL_A, won the international competition to design the project. Levete, who won the Stirling Prize while at Future Systems, has designed stand-out projects such as the Selfridges department store in Birmingham and the media centre at Lord's Cricket Ground.
