All, Not sure if this should go in here as it was nearly 3 years ago now? Please feel free to move it if need be. At the time there was scaffold up at the building side as it was closed due to refurbishment. Some info from the internet: Hayward Gallery is one of the world’s leading contemporary art galleries. Since it opened in the summer of 1968 with an exhibition by Henri Matisse, Hayward Gallery has played a crucial role in presenting work by some of the world’s most significant artists. Between September 2015 and 24 January 2018, the gallery was closed for a two-year refurbishment project to restore our iconic 1960s arts venues to a world-class standard. The focus of the refurbishment project in Hayward Gallery was to restore its 66 glass pyramid rooflights in order to let controlled natural lighting into the upper galleries for the first time, transforming the experience of the hundreds of thousands of visitors we welcome every year. The stone floors of the gallery have also been replaced, the iconic sculpture terraces have been repaved and new climate control and other essential building services have been installed to ensure that Hayward Gallery can continue to present its programme of world-class exhibitions. So myself, Sweetpea and @Letchbo found ourselves climbing our way up to the top. The roof isnt that high so we were in view of passers-by and people waiting up the bus stop so had to be quick. We grabbed afew photos and watched the Southbank security milling around down below unaware us 3 were on the roof Hayward by Hayward by Hayward by Hayward by Hayward by Hayward by Hayward by Hayward by Cheers for looking DJ
