A fritted glass canopy will be the centerpiece of the newest addition to the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
Work has been completed on a new stand-alone building, a public art garden and a restored historic building, meaning the gallery is on track to open to the public in December.
Pritzker Prize-winning architects SANAA have designed a new, open and accessible home for the arts within a beautiful gallery park overlooking Sydney Harbour.
NSW Premier Dominic Perrotet said the government’s $244 million investment in the project would help inject $1 billion into the NSW economy, as well as inspire the next generation of artists.
“The new building is an architectural masterpiece that matches some of the best works of art in the world and we can’t wait to welcome the public in December,” Mr Perrotet told reporters on Sunday.
The expansion was supported by more than $100 million from private donors.
