The Hepworth Wakefield, named after English sculptur Barbara Hepworth who was born in Wakefield in 1903, is located in the historic waterfront area on the banks of the River Calder south of Wakefield City Centre.
A single quiet and tranquil room that resembles a forest, filled with soft light and a feeling of openness reminiscent of the outdoors.
The museum emerges from the landscape as a single, curving concrete wall that splits and carves into the ground to form the entry.
The museum occupies a central position in the building and also in the project's origin, setting the goals in the overall building organization.
