In the morning, students visited the Hepworth Wakefield. The new art gallery opened on Wakefield’s historic waterfront in 2011 and was designed by acclaimed British architect David Chipperfield – winner of the 2007 RIBA Stirling Prize for Architecture. In the afternoon, the trip continued to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, exploring works by James Turrell, Giuseppe Penone, and many others, and enjoying the new visitor centre, realised by Feilden Fowles architects.
