The Richard Serra Institute for Contemporary Sculpture is a sculpture gallery designed to exhibit a permanent collection of Richard Serra’s works as well as the work of guest sculptors.
The gallery was to be situated at Rhoose Point, the most southerly point of mainland Wales. Given the remote location, the proposal needed to include extensive landscaping and a sculpture garden to accommodate some of the larger works.
The gallery was designed with strong reference to the industrial nature of the sculptures and the site, a disused quarry. Using a palette of industrial materials, including reclaimed bricks and concrete floors, the gallery spaces displayed the works in an atmosphere reminiscent of that in which they were created.
