For such a big building they dont seem to have gained much gallery space. Also I find the transition between the old building and the new building somewhat awqard

Yes, but I don’t believe the brief specified much more gallery space, I see the millenium wing a s device for drawing more of the general public into the gallery and in that sense it works quite well. You are led directly up the wide stairway and into the old gallery in what amounts to a straight line.

The other bits of the programme: cafe, shop, etc are hugely successfull and generate a lot of revenue for the gallery as well as giving it a greater presence within the cityscape by encouraging passing visitors to come in.
