The Queen's Gallery, UK

Chris Hodson

Built to mark the Golden Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen in 2002, the new Gallery is a major centre for the visual arts in the heart of London, provided with the most up-to-date museological servies for the conservation and display of works of art of all kinds.

The new entrance portico is roofed in copper sheet with pressed copper and cast bronze embellishments. The double height entrance has a part-glazed roof with copper 'fish-scale' panels and is also decorated with pressed copper glazing bar cappings.

The building won an award for Craftsmanship in the Copper in Architecture Awards 11 when the judges considered the workmanship throughout the building to be exceptional.

Beautifully made pre-finished embellishments and decorative elements have been elegantly integrated with the on-site copper roofing work - all carefully interpreting the architect's intentions.
