project Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham, Great Britain
written by Daniel Rosbottom


Nottingham Contemporary represents a significant moment for English practice Caruso St John Architects, particularly as its opening coincides with the tenth anniversary of the Walsall Art Gallery, the practice’s first major building and the project which established their international reputation. Also a gallery within a regional context, that building addressed, with considerable conviction, concerns that remain pertinent in considering this, their latest work.
