Colour Palace up for Civic Trust Award

Congratulations to Pricegore architects whose Colour Palace Summer Pavilion for the Dulwich Picture Gallery, designed in collaboration with artist and designer Yinka Ilori, was entered into the 2020 Civic Trust Awards. It has been selected as one of only 49 successful National/International projects and will receive either an Award or be Highly Commended at the 61st Civic Trust Awards Ceremony which will be held at the iconic venue of the Imperial War Museum North in Trafford, Manchester on Friday 6th March 2020

The Colour Palace is a 10m high cube with a bold geometric pattern, standing on four huge red cylinders. At its core is an atrium, creating an arena where visitors can view the structure from many different perspectives, including from an interior raised viewing platform.

Developed in partnership with the London Festival of Architecture, the Pavilion is a fusion of West African and European influences, inspired by the buzz of fabric markets in Lagos, and the symmetry, curves and right angles of Sir John Soane’s iconic Gallery design. The Guardian newspaper described it as ‘a zinging neon rainbow’.
