UK’s V&A Museum to Expand Underground



The UK’s Victoria & Albert Museum has unveiled a 35 million pound (US$56 million) expansion plan that will bring design and decorative arts exhibitions to an underground gallery, reports the Guardian.

Two-year-old architecture firm AL_A, led by Amanda Levete, will spearhead the project, which is expected to be completed 2015. Above the underground gallery space, the firm proposed a 1,500-square-meter “new public space” that “can be hired or curated with art or music or film as well as a place to simply sit on the steps”, the Guardian reports.

“It is a defining project for AL_A because it expresses the way we think; for the V&A, we have made visible the invisible,” the firm wrote on its website.
