Pricegore & Yinka Ilori—Dulwich Pavilion

Built poetry: the 2019 Dulwich Pavilion designed by London-based architects Dingle Price and Alex Gore in collaboration with British artist Yinka Ilori.

The Dulwich Picture Gallery in the south of London was the world’s first purpose-built public art gallery. Founded in 1811, when Sir Francis Bourgeois RA bequeathed his collection of old masters “for the inspection of the public,” it opened its famous building designed by John Soane in 1817. To mark the museum’s bicentenary in 2017, Dulwich Picture Gallery commissioned the first temporary summer pavilion on its grounds.

For the second edition of the Dulwich Pavilion in 2019, the commission was awarded to London-based architects Dingle Price and Alex Gore in collaboration with British artist Yinka Ilori. This elegant large-format book documents this piece of built poetry in a series of striking atmospheric photographs by Sophie Roycroft. Concise essays by Job Floris and Sumayya Vally situate the project within its social, political, and cultural context and are complemented by technical details and selected plans and drawings on and inside the book’s cover.
