On November 1, the Victoria and Albert Museum revealed plans for its ambitious satellite location, called V&A East, in London’s former Olympic park.
The five-story museum will have a spacious temporary exhibition gallery presenting two shows a year, with one out of every four organized by the Smithsonian Institution. In fact, the space’s inaugural show will be a collaboration between the two institutional bodies.
According to a museum statement, the research center’s main objectives will be to house a collection of 250,000 objects and “reinvent the idea of a museum store” after the V&A loses its current store in Blythe House, which the government is selling.
