Burlington Gardens

I realise you may tire of my posts about Burlington Gardens, but I like the idea of being able to record its slow transformation as I walk people round trying to raise the last £3 million.   I can’t pretend that much has changed, just that I notice different details.

The view of the Lecture Theatre now that the floor has been removed:-


The drainpipes on the side of Albany:-


Its chimneypots:-


And the view through the scaffolding over the roof of the Schools:-

    The opposite. I wish you would treat us to more photos of the progress. This is a rare opportunity that we can’t otherwise see. Would it be possible to occasionally include a long view too?

    All the best,

    I like the posts on Burlington Gardensits good to keep in touch with the progress however slow it might appear. Thank you for showing the detail and minutiae as that will pass me by when I eventually go there and see the finished product.

  3. I agree strongly with Jocelyn and Susie : more detail and reports on progress,
    please. This is going to transform the Academy for the next few decades and it’s wonderful to see the whole building come to life with light flooding into its spaces.

    Only if you report regularly will we be able to appreciate the transformation that I’m sure David Chipperfield is going to produce.
