The Royal Academy of Arts, London, has announced that it will open its new and transformed campus to the public on 19 May 2018 following a significant redevelopment and restoration. Linking Burlington House and Burlington Gardens both physically and programmatically, the redevelopment will create new galleries and public areas while also improving the general facilities. A link bridge between the two historic buildings, currently under construction (pictured), forms part of a new public route through the complex.
Opening in time for the institution’s 250th anniversary next year, the RA will present an extended exhibition programme and free displays across the campus.
