4 x m2 Gallery Pavilion

Background and Brief

Since 2003 the m2 Gallery has operated as a not-for-profit, 24 hour, window gallery at the front of Quay2c Architects’ studio, addressing Kings Grove, just off Queens Road Peckham.  The directors of the m2 Gallery have had the long standing idea that this metre square by half metre deep window exhibition space could “pop up” in other venues.

Scheme

Championed by Chelsea College of Art & Design (CCAD) and London Open House, Quay2c have designed a freestanding pavilion, featuring a one metre square window exhibition space on each of is four sides.  The temporary 4 x m2 Gallery Pavilion will be built on the Roostein Hopkins Parade Ground, the grand forecourt to the Art College, situated opposite the new entrance to Tate Britain.

The pavilion is to be made of as many recycled materials as possible and will be constructed on site in conjunction with MA Interior & Spatial Design students at CCAD.  There will be a programme of exhibitions running throughout the summer and the structure is accessible for viewing at any time during this period.
