New section of the V&A

The new section of the V&A is absolutely stunning. The new extension provides a new entrance, courtyard and gallery. The modern extension somewhat fits into the 19th-century architecture, which is very clever of the architect Amanda Levete.

Of course, the V&A is the type of building that you need to focus on the features of the building. For example, the public courtyard is porcelain tiled in order to fit into the 19th-century architecture. The courtyard provides a space for art installations and boasts a glass fronted cafe.

The Sainsbury Gallery is a column-free space and is the largest temporary exhibition space in the UK. This location was used for the Molly Goddard fashion show in this space which shows how flexible the space is. The skylights provide the additional light into the exhibition space, but the real work of art is the angles of the staircase into the Sainsbury Gallery.
