Turner Contemporary

Model of Turner Contemporary by David ChipperfieldWhile Southwark Council was voting to axe the Livesey Museum on Wednesday evening in order to save £146,000, Thanet District Council was granting planning permission for the new Turner Contemporary gallery to be built in Margate, Kent, at a cost of £17.5m. It seems there is always money for prestige projects. Here's a model of the proposed gallery, designed by architect David Chipperfield. Ships' sails for a seaside resort? A visual cliché, but why not?
