Goldsmiths gallery design chosen

Design website Dezeen has lots of new images of the winning design for Goldsmiths' planned new art gallery. The winning architecture practice, Assemble, was chosen from a shortlist of six by a panel of judges including Antony Gormley and David Chipperfield.

The project will convert the old tanks at the Laurie Grove bathhouse into display space. The gallery is a key element of the University's emerging masterplan, which will transform its campus and the wider New Cross landscape.
A substantial part of the funding for the project, which was announced in 2011, will come from the auction of works of art by Goldsmiths alumni. The gallery is slated for completion in 2016. Thanks to Anna Dent for the link.
