Goldsmiths reveals design of new art gallery on Laurie Grove baths site

Goldsmiths University has revealed plans for a new art gallery to be built on the site of the Laurie Grove baths; paid for by funds raised by an auction of works by some of the university's famous alumni.

The gallery, designed by Assemble, will incorporate the black steel water tanks from Laurie Grove Baths. The design 'will expose the hidden character of the Laurie Grove bath tanks and create a unique opportunity to welcome the public to Goldsmiths, enabling them to experience both the tanks and existing building in new and exciting ways' says the press release on Goldsmith's website.
