“The Colour Palace” by Pricegore and Yinka Ilori has been chosen as the 2019 Dulwich Pavilion in London. A temporary structure to open at Dulwich Picture Gallery during the London Festival of Architecture in June 2019, “The Colour Palace” is a celebration of color, pattern, and light, drawing from European and African cultural traditions. The scheme was chosen from a competitive shortlist of six emerging architecture firms, compiled from 150 entries. PUP Architects were the winners of the on-site public vote, which represented one vote at the panel judging. Intended as a representation of London’s multiculturalism, the bold geometric pattern of “The Colour Palace” was inspired by the Dutch wax prints from a Lagos market, mirrored in London’s “Little Lagos” district. The façade is formed by timber louvres, painted in different colors on each side to create a shifting pattern when viewed from different perspectives.
