David Chipperfield has today unveiled his plans to reconfigure and renovate the Royal Academy of Arts in London, which will include building a bridge between two historic buildings.

Described by the London-based architect as "a series of subtle interventions", the development will include connecting Burlington House, the grand Palladian house used by the Royal Academy since the mid-19th century, and 6 Burlington Gardens, a former University of London building purchased by the art institution in 2001.

London's Royal Academy of Arts (RA) has been awarded a grant of £1 million from the Clore Duffield Foundation for the new Clore Learning Center, which forms part of the major redevelopment to transform Burlington Gardens and enable the RA to share and interpret its heritage for a broad 21st century audience.

The Burlington Project is the Royal Academy of Arts’ most ambitious transformation since its move to Burlington House in 1868. The Masterplan, led by the award-winning architect David Chipperfield CBE RA, will see the major expansion of the RA’s current visitor and learning facilities, including a new central link between Burlington House and Burlington Gardens (the former Museum of Mankind), a grand double-height lecture theater, and a Clore Learning Center within Burlington Gardens.

Launched last week, the competition’s winner is due to be announced next April.
