The Future of London's Historic Alexandra Palace Revealed in New Exhibition

The Future of London's Historic Alexandra Palace Revealed in New Exhibition

The soaring glass roofs of London's Alexandra Palace are about to receive a major overhaul thanks to a £23.8m ($38.6m USD) fundraising project focused on the revitalization of the 139 year old palace. Images of Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios 2014 revitalization are on display for the first time in an exhibition showcasing the upcoming changes to the public palace, including extensive renovations to reopen derelict sections of the building. Find out more about the exhibition after the break.

Originally built in 1873, the "People's Palace" was only open for sixteen days before being destroyed in a fire, but opened again in 1875 after reconstruction. London-based Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios were selected in early 2014 to restore the Palace's three "hidden gems" - the original BBC Studios, the East Court, and the Victorian Theatre. Find out more about the exhibition on the Alexandra Palace website, or in person at the Palace from September 27 to October 7.
