London's V&A has revealed new images and information about V&A East, a museum by O'Donnell + Tuomey and research center by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. Sited within London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the projects will be built at the Here East complex and Stratford Waterfront. The V&A have stated that the museum will include two galleries to showcase the collections, while the research center aims to be a new model for collection storage and public display. Designed as part of the billion dollar Olympicopolis cultural quarter, the O'Donnell + Tuomey museum was formed with an angular and faceted structure that will feature large triangular windows. Sheila O'Donnell and John Tuomey, founders of O'Donnell + Tuomey, have said that the museum design will be "a freestanding pavilion, closely connected to its surroundings, its faceted form active on all sides, easily accessible from different directions. Inside is a multi- level sequence of gallery spaces, connected by flowing stairs and big elevators, with display galleries and social spaces."
