This summer, the Dulwich Pavilion returns with The Colour Palace, created by Pricegore architects and designer Yinka Ilori.

Free and open to all this summer, The Colour Palace will bring our grounds to technicolour life. 

 

A fusion of West African and European influences, the Pavilion is inspired by the buzz of fabric markets in Lagos, and the symmetry, curves and right angles of Sir John Soane's iconic Gallery design.  

 

The structureThe Colour Palace is a 10 metre high cube with a bold geometric pattern, standing on four huge red cylinders. At its core is an atrium, creating an arena where visitors can view the structure from many different perspectives, including from an interior raised viewing platform.
