Feilden Fowles has submitted planning for Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s new visitor centre, West Yorkshire. The new visitor centre will provide visitors a world-class gallery space, restaurant and shop. The building is designed sympathetically with the historic landscape, sheltering from the nearby motorway and embracing the stunning views across the park for the public to enjoy.
Peter Murray, Executive & Founding Director of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park stated:
‘The new visitor centre is a reflection of YSP’s ambition to increase long term resilience and sustainability by building audiences, further developing our artistic programme, and increasing visitor income.
‘In our 40th anniversary year, the centre will provide an important addition to our physical infrastructure, bringing together all of the successful elements of previous developments.
‘It will provide a platform to sustain and increase visitor numbers over the next decade, offering exciting new artistic experiences for the public to enjoy, while boosting our commercial income, providing sustainability in the long term as reductions in public funding continue to take effect.’
