My Favourite... Museum
It's yet another Wednesday, which means it's time for a new My Favourite post, thanks to Maureen's Books and the theme of the week was museum.
There's so many fun and interesting museums around the globe, but one that I really like is Victoria and Albert Museum in London. There's so much to see there, that it's almost impossible to get over everything in one day.
One museum, two grand entrances. Swipe right to compare our two very contrasting, but equally extraordinary, grand entrances. In 1891 a competition was held for the rare opportunity to extend the V&A and create a truly huge façade in South Kensington. The huge sculpted museum entrance along Cromwell Road today was a competition-winning design by the young architect Aston Webb. More than a century later, Amanda Levete’s architecture firm AL_A similarly won an extensive international competition to do the very same: to physically transform the V&A, and to continue the Museum's mission to inspire all who enter its doors with innovative architectural surroundings. This is just one of the incredible chapters of the V&A story. Read more online (link is in bio).
