Krijn de Koning builds colourful structures at Turner Contemporary. Dutch artist Krijn de Koning has created a labyrinthine walkway between brightly coloured walls on a terrace at the Turner Contemporary gallery in Margate, England (+ slideshow). The first public commission in England by De Koning, the Dwelling installation comprises a series of angled walls punctured with doorways and windows that create a trail for visitors to navigate through. Situated on the south terrace of the David Chipperfield-designed Turner Contemporary, the walls are positioned between the exterior of the gallery building and the site boundary. The elements slot between existing structures, incorporating changes in floor level and abutting permanent concrete balustrades.

"The artist's site-specific works – part architecture, part sculpture – challenge the viewer, offering new possibilities to navigate and experience the space the works inhabit," said a statement from the gallery. Stripy Melbourne school by McBride Charles Ryan mirrors the skyline. MVRDV converts a chapel into an entrance for Stedelijk Museum Schiedam. Dutch studio MVRDV has transformed a neoclassical chapel into the main entrance for a museum of modern art in Schiedam, the Netherlands, adding bright red shelves between the listed building's existing features (+ slideshow).

The Stedelijk Museum Schiedam is housed in a former guesthouse for the elderly and sick, which was established between 1262 and 1272, and is housed in two wings on either side of the chapel containing MVRDV's intervention. Following a renovation in 2006, the museum's entrance had been located in the basement where visitors found it difficult to locate the stairs leading to the reception area. The transformation of the chapel – built in 1787 by Italian architect Jan Giudici – gives a new purpose to the neglected space and introduces several additional functions.

The red shelves that cover the lower walls and one full-height wall facing the entrance incorporate a reception desk, cloakroom facilities, a cafe counter and product displays for the museum shop.
