The new Whitechapel Gallery opened its doors for the first time after a temporary hiatus to the delight of critics and art lovers as they encountered a bright and exciting gallery.

The enthusiasm for the newly inaugurated gallery has led critics to consider it a modern-day masterpiece and the ultimate place for modern art in London.

The Whitechapel Gallery has undertaken a magnificent transformation as the small London gallery located between a tube station and a KFC restaurant became the ultimate work of art to shock the English capital.

The iconic gallery has doubled its total size by annexing a juxtaposed library building into the main Whitechapel headquarters. The project has been financed by The Heritage Lottery Fund with an approximate cost of £13.5m.

The new facade was designed by Robbrecht& Daem and the final results described as a ” complex [infrastructure] but utterly casual. Everything is focused towards the experience of looking at the art.”.

The new gallery counts with new main floor that feels larger and a more sophisticated entrance. The new library gallery provides extra space as the total size of the Whitechapel infrastructure has doubled under the £13.5 m programme.

“The curious, imperfect symmetry of the spaces somehow heigthens the sense of déjà-vu. But this only intensifies the odd state of mind you need when looking at art” says Kester Rattenbury, writer for The Architects Journal.
