… a wander along the South Bank …

Hayward_3951

… yellow staircases? Not sure about that …

Hayward_3940

… leading me to the newly refurbished
Hayward Gallery …

Hayward_3974

… at first glance not a lot of change
but floors have been relaid, heating controls
and other essential requirements for
modern galleries updated …

Hayward_3984

… a wonderful example of 1960s Brutalist architecture
the gallery is as much a pleasure as the art it exhibits …

Hayward_3975

… sadly couldn’t inspect the roof terraces
that have also been improved …

Hayward_3977

… but thoroughly enjoyed a leisurely wander
around the Andreas Gursky exhibition …
