AL_A unveils new entrance and subterranean gallery for London's V&A museum



Stirling Prize-winning architect Amanda Levete and her firm AL_A has completed its new entrance and gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum on Exhibition Road, London.

The V&A Exhibition Road Quarter comprises an alternative entrance to the museum, as well as extra gallery space and a courtyard.

The £54.5 million scheme by Levete’s London-based firm, which was first announced back in 2012, provides 6,400 square metres of extra space for the museum. It is the largest expansion at the museum in over 100 years and forms part of its Future Plan project, which has seen two-thirds of the V&A’s public spaces overhauled in the last 15 years.
