V&A unveils plans for two new sites in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
The V&A has unveiled plans that will revolutionise how its world-leading collection of art, design and performance is accessed, explored and experienced. The V&A East project will create two interconnected sites in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – a brand-new museum at Stratford Waterfront, and a new collection and research centre at Here East. They will open in 2023 and V&A East will also host a unique partnership with the Smithsonian Institution – the largest museum and research complex in the world.
