The Southbank Centre has today unveiled its proposal to transform Festival Wing and “Create a world-class Cultural Centre in London”.

British Architecture firm, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has proposed the refurbishment and renewal of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery Complex to create new art space, glass pavilion and central foyer. The proposal is designed to upgrade the performance spaces and galleries to deliver an enhanced educational and cultural programme across the site.

The Southbank Centre is the UK’s largest arts centre, over 21 acres on the South Bank of the Thames. The Southbank centre has an incredible history dating back to the Festival of Britain in 1951 and the proposals are designed to enhance the cultural experience of one of the UK’s most vibrant cultural quarters.
