David Chipperfield is to unveil new designs for the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery in Margate. Due to be completed by 2010, the project will cost £17.5m be located on land, and not offshore under the previous version of the plans. A central feature of the design will be its 'incredible window towards the sea', as Chipperfield has described it.

The new gallery will include a main exhibiting area on the top floor, with another area exclusively for young artists to showcase their work.
