A new exhibition which takes a behind-the-scenes look at architecture.
The Harley Gallery is building a new gallery space to display objects from the historic Portland Collection of fine and decorative arts.
This exhibition, showing 11 June – 10 August, will feature the intricate models for this new space from ar-chitect Hugh Broughton, and exhibition designer John Ronayne.
The models will be accompanied by a specially commissioned film about the project, giving visitors an in-sight into the new Gallery and the processes involved in its creation.
Hugh Broughton Architects, were appointed to design the new Gallery after a tightly fought competition. They have also created buildings such as the Halley VI Antarctic Station and the new, copper encrusted East Wing for Maidstone Museum. Exhibition designer John Ronayne has worked on projects including the Tower of London and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
The project, costing £5million, will be funded through private philanthropy. Lisa Gee, Director of The Harley Gallery and Foundation, said: ‘At a time when we often hear about spending cuts, it is fantastic to be able to develop a new cultural facil-ity for Nottinghamshire, particularly as public subsidy for the arts is diminishing.’
This new building will be located alongside The Harley Gallery, which was awarded the first Civic Trust Award for Architecture in Nottinghamshire in 1995.
