Shortly after the presentation of the Diller Scofidio + Renfro LSO concert hall at the Barbican, British media report that US architect Frank Gehry is working on plans for a major new concert venue in Wimbledon. Gehry foresees a 1,250-seat venue on a site in south-west London currently used as a supermarket car park. Anthony Wilkinson, director of the Wimbledon International Music Festival plans to raise around £100 million for this new hall. Wilkinson said the Wimbledon concert hall would complement the LSO project.
