In 2017 the Gallery celebrated 200 years of operation with an ambitious bicentenary programme of exhibitions alongside the first Dulwich Pavilion. Following the success of the inaugural pavilion, the gallery launched a public competition for a second Pavilion to be constructed within the stunning Gallery grounds in summer 2019. The architectural pavilion launches as part of London Festival of Architecture, creating a dynamic juxtaposition with the John Soane building,  engaging new audiences in architecture and design. Through the commission of Pricegore (Dingle Price and Alex Gore) and London-based designer Yinka Ilori, the 2019 pavilion will attract widespread press attention through a vibrant programme of public events, enabling the Gallery to entice new audiences, broadening the  reach to a wider demographic, whilst offering an invaluable opportunity for the emerging architects and designers to develop an individual creative platform.

With offices in London and Bath, Pricegore was founded by architects Dingle Price and Alex Gore in 2013. With work across the UK and in Europe, the practice’s portfolio includes residential, arts, and civic sector projects, at all scales from furniture to urban strategy. Working in collaboration with the studio, London-based designer Yinka Ilori specializes in the imaginative upcycling of vintage furniture. Inspired by the African influences of his childhood, Yinka’s pieces span the divisions between art and design while sparking a conversation about social norms and consumer culture.
