Interior view: view of gallery space devoted to Barbara Hepworth's work. Natural light, augmented by artificial lighting is reflected from above in the ceiling. Additional spot lights in the ceiling illuminate specific elements in the exhibition space. Location: Gallery Walk, Wakefield. Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975) was born in Wakefield. This project was at the heart of Wakefield's regeneration programme. CHIPPERFIELD was chosen after a competition in 2003. Completes a trinity of sculpture venues in West Yorkshire with the Henry Moore Gallery in Leeds and the Yorkshire Sculpture nearby at Bretton. In the same year that Hepworth Wakefield opened, a second art gallery by CHIPPERFIELD, the Turner Contemporary, was opened in Margate.
