The Next Dulwich Picture Gallery Pavilion Will Be A Colourful Affair

Dulwich Pavilion

The Dulwich Pavilion is a bright new addition to South London.

Pavilions are all the rage right now. The Serpentine Galleries unveiled a fancy new number earlier this summer, and now Dulwich Picture Gallery are getting in on the pavilion game. After the success of their 2017 pavilion, built to celebrate the gallery’s 200th anniversary, they invited submissions for a new offering. Today, they’ve chosen the winner of the Dulwich Pavilion prize, and you’ll struggle to miss it. Mostly because it’s insanely colourful.

The pavilion was created by artist Yinka Ilori and architects Pricegore, and fuses African and European design styles. It’s billed as a celebration of multicultural London, inspired by Ilori’s Nigerian heritage, and they’ve named it The Colour Palace. Which sounds like a pretty dreamy place to live, TBH. The result is a pavilion of wooden slats, decorated with multicoloured geometric patterns. Pretty, isn’t it? There’s only one catch: this is the design for summer 2019.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a pavilion for 2018, so we’re in for a patient wait before this one arrives. When it does, the Dulwich Pavilion will host a range of events, pop-up catering options, and maybe even a bar. One thing’s is guaranteed: this pavilion will be posing for a lot of photos next summer…
