Gallery Gain for Gardens

As part of a new intiative to make better use of park buildings, plans are afoot to create a new art gallery in Kensington Gardens, the project will be known as the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, and will bring the Magazine building on West Carriage Drive into use for the first time.

Award winning architect Zaha Hadid will be renovating the building and the plan will include a restaurant and social space in an adjoining pavilion. There will also be a light installation and an outdoor play area.

K&C will hear the planning application early in the new year as the Magazine building is Grade II listed and therefore will require permission to make any alterations.

  1. How do these dreadful architects get awards?
    Answer: They award them to each other.
