Sydney Modern Project - Art Gallery of NSW
Richard Crookes Constructions
2019 – 2023
The Sydney Modern Project will be a new art museum connected to the existing Art Gallery of NSW. The new design almost doubles the space of the existing gallery, enabling the Art Gallery of NSW to showcase more outstanding works of local art, alongside a program of highly acclaimed national and international exhibitions.
Sydney Modern’s innovative and environmentally sustainable design is a successful integration of architecture, art and landscape. All three are combined in ways that surprise and delight gallery-goers as they meander through a host of interconnected spaces, revealing a play of views vistas, light and form as a backdrop to the gallery’s collections. It is the first public art museum in Australia to achieve the highest environmental standard. The GBCA has awarded the Sydney Modern Project a 6-star Green Star Design rating, making it a world class leader in sustainability.
