London based architecture studio Caruso St John’s Newport Street Gallery incorporates a series of converted former theatre warehouses and newly designed structures to create artist Damien Hirst’s new public gallery. The 2016 RIBA Stirling Prize winning project provides a space for Damien Hirst to exhibit his private art collection along with the works of friends and associates.
The undertaking of the architectural photography of Newport Street Gallery occurred over a period of several years from its opening in 2016 and again on a more recent visit in 2019. The photographs document the transitions in the projects external form and the subtle contrast in brickwork where the old and new elements of the facade intersect. A more comprehensive account of the building and my experience as an architectural photographer exploring the space can be found over on my blog.
