A look inside the temporary structure in the grounds of Dulwich Picture Gallery.
The Dulwich Picture Gallery is bringing back a summer pavilion for the 2019 season. Two years after the last pavilion marked the gallery’s 200th anniversary, this year sees the opening of the Colour Palace. The colourful 10 metre high cube has been created by Pricegore architects and designer Yinka Iloir.
The Colour Palace has been inspired by the fabric markets of Lagos, Nigeria, and the symmetry and curves of Sir John Soane’s design of the nearby Gallery. Featuring an open courtyard at the bottom, the structure is supported by four red cylinders. Inside features a narrow atrium, where visitors can ascend the two staircases to view the interior.
The pavilion is open throughout the summer and will be the hub for supper clubs, yoga classes, and a series of monthly late-night openings, with talks, workshops, music, drinks, dining and more taking place. The pavilion will also be hosting events as part of June’s London Festival of Architecture.
- The Dulwich Pavilion is open until 22 September 2019. At Dulwich Picture Gallery, Gallery Road, Dulwich Village, SE21 7AD. Nearest station: West Dulwich or North Dulwich. For more information, visit the Dulwich Picture Gallery website.
