EXPANSION OF THE ART GALLERY NEW SOUTH WALES

The SANAA-designed expansion will consist of a series of pavilions that sit “low and lightly on the site,” matching the existing topography of the land to complement the natural landscape reaching toward the Sydney Harbour and existing Gallery building.
Cities: SYDNEY
Countries: AUSTRALIA
Categories: CULTURAL ARCHITECTURE
Work in Progress - Progetto Architettonico: SANAA
The addition will significantly increase the total floor area of the museum, including galleries dedicated to the display of Australian, Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Asia Pacific art, as well as international galleries and specialized spaces for works of paper, photographs and the moving image. 
The expansion will also focus on creating a connection between the indoor and outdoor, with a new outdoor cultural plaza designed to feature art displays, live performances and a variety of other events.
