The V&A is seeking a suitably qualified and experienced Base Build Architect to join the design team for Phase 2 of the Photography Gallery project. The overall purpose is to create a state-of-the-art International Photography Centre at the V&A, to improve public understanding of the history of photography and its techniques. Phase 1 has been delivered and encompasses rooms 99, 100 & 101. Phase 2 is now commencing. The design for the second phase of the Photography Centre comprises of rooms 95, 96, 97 and 98, a new roof to the Tapestry Gallery (room 94) and a large amount of M&E upgrade / replacement works. These spaces will join Phase 1 to complete and reopen the suite of rooms originally designed and built in the 1860s. It is important that there is coherence across the spaces associated with Phases 1 and 2 of the Photography Centre. This contract is for the Base Build elements of Phase 2 only. A separate competition will follow for the gallery fit out design.
