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. The original National Gallery building (part of which can be seen here) was designed by William Wilkins and completed in 1838.
