Notes NOTES: The winning design for the National Gallery extension project, by Ahrends, Burton & Koralek, was eventually abandoned in favour of a scheme by Venturi, Scott Brown & Associates which was constructed in 1991. The extension became known as The Sainsbury Wing and was designed to house the Gallery's Renaissance collections.
