We are delighted to announce that DKA has been appointed to design a new Photography Centre for the Victoria & Albert Museum following a design competition. The museum has recently secured the Royal Photographic Society's collection to add to its own which will make one of the most significant collections of photographs in the world. The Centre will be ground-breaking for its scale and the variety of ways in which audiences will be able to engage with the collection.
David will be giving a lecture entitled, "Adaptation, Ambiguity & the Incomplete" at the Royal College of Art to accompany the launch of Professor Graeme Brooker's new book, "Adaptation" that features the project Carrer Avinyó.
