The Summer Pavilion at the Dulwich Picture Gallery is the spectacular Colour Palace, created by Pricegore architects in collaboration with artist and designer Yinka Ilori.
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’.
