London’s Royal Academy of Arts has announced plans for a new permanent architecture-specific gallery and the creation of two new international architecture awards as part of the RA’s mission to “garner a wider appreciation and understanding of architecture, bringing to the fore its vital relationship to culture and society.” The new architecture space, along with a cafe, will be housed within the Dorfman Senate Rooms in Burlington Gardens, allowing the academy to show architectural exhibition year-round. The architecture rooms join wider renovation plans led by David Chipperfield Architects that will also include a new naturally-lit theater. The two international awards, to be held on an annual basis, will consist of the Royal Academy Architecture Prize, “honouring an inspiring and enduring contribution to the culture of architecture,” and the Royal Academy Dorfman Award to identify and celebrate new talent in architecture.
