    Comments Off on Sackler Galleries, Royal Academy of Arts

    This multiple award winning project for The Royal Academy of Art was completed in 1991. The objective of the project was to tie the historic grade 1 listed Burlington House and its major gallery spaces together with new galleries on the roof and the larger Victorian galleries to the North. The solution was to re-invent the neglected light well space connecting all three elements as a dramatic translucent glazed vertical gallery; complete with delicately engineered glazed link bridges, a staircase and elevator, also providing access to a new and more intimate setting for Michelangelo’s Tondo of the virgin and child.
