ARCHITECTURE

This space, which brings to mind the style from half a century ago, is a new acquisition of Southbank Centre from London. The archive was designed by Jonathan Tuckey Design architecture studio; it is a reading room, a library and a conference room all in one.
The bookshelf system used in the project comes from the 1950s – the period when the Centre was established. Thus, the new space not only fulfils the storage function, but also tells the story of the building it serves. www.southbankcentre.co.uk
