The Burrell Collection (2)

Rowan Moore is a bit more negative about the Burrell Collection than I am inclined to be. I don’t really remember it as it was, but it seems that it had become pretty unloved, whereas its renovation has reinvigorated it, added new galleries and opened it up to the public, while remaining pretty faithful to its original character. If its revitalisation means it has lost some of the more idiosyncratic aspects of the original design, then I’m not persuaded we should mourn their loss.
