London's famous Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum has unveiled the shortlisted design proposals for its new gallery.
The development will see a new purpose-built gallery being built alongside the Exhibition Road museum, which will house a series of temporary exhibitions. A new public courtyard and new entrance will also be constructed.
Now, seven of the shortlisted designs for the gallery have gone on display at the V&A's Sackler Centre. Following a competition which invited architecture firms from across the globe to submit their ideas, designs from firms including London-based Jamie Fobert Architects, Tony Fretton Architects, Irish firm Heneghan.peng and New York firm Michael Maltzan Architecture, are in the running.
A jury chaired by V&A trustee Steve McGuckin will now decide on the winner, which will be announced at the end of this month.
McGuckin said, "The shortlisted teams have all come up with highly creative and well thought through design solutions for this complex V&A site.
"Choosing a winning team to lead the Exhibition Road Project will not be an easy decision for the jury," he added.
