New designs revealed for the V&A East by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and O’Donnell + Tuomey

Nov 6, 2018 / News

The Victoria and Albert Museum (often abbreviated the V&A) has revealed renderings for a new project: V&A East, which will comprise a museum designed by Dublin-based O’Donnell + Tuomey, and a research center designed by our friends at Diller Scofidio + Renfro. V&A East will be located within the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London: the museum will comprise two galleries to showcase V&A collections, and the research center will constitute a new state-of-the-art model for collection storage and public display: conceived as a vertically organized program, it will house 250,K objects from the V&A’s collections of fashion, textiles, sculpture, furniture, painting, ceramics, glass, design and architecture. Says Elizabeth Diller, Partner, DS+R, “[Stepping into] V&A East will be like stepping into an immersive cabinet of curiosities—a three-dimensional sampling of the eclectic collection of artifacts, programmed with diverse spaces for research, object study, workshops, and back-of-house functions.” Both venues of V&A East will be open to families, students of all ages, artists and designers, and tourists.
