Abstract: The Royal Academy of London has hired British architect Michael Hopkins to design a new, vastly expanded facility.


Huntsville, Ala. (Feb. 13, 2001) The Royal Academy of London has hired British architect Michael Hopkins to design a new, vastly expanded facility. The academy recently purchased the former home of the Museum of Mankind, which is directly behind its present building.

Hopkins will design an atrium to connect the two buildings, and will also create a lecture theater, workshops and a large gallery. George III founded the academy in 1768 to promote art and architecture. The expansion is expected to be complete by 2007.
