Construction complete on Sydney Modern Project
Construction is complete on the Art Gallery of New South Wales’s Sydney Modern Project, with the new building one step closer to opening to the public on Saturday 3 December.
The Sydney Modern Project is being delivered by Infrastructure NSW on behalf of the NSW Government and the Art Gallery of NSW and built by Richard Crookes Constructions. Architectus was appointed Executive Architect in support of Pritzker Prize-winning Japanese architectural and design firm SANAA.
Architectus was also appointed Urban Planner and secured planning approval for the project under a State Significant Development Application.
“The Sydney Modern Project is one of the most significant cultural developments in the city since the opening of the Sydney Opera House nearly half a century ago,” says Principal Luke Johnson.
“After eight years working closely with our colleagues at SANAA, Arup, Atelier Ten, McGregor Coxall and Richard Crookes Constructions, it’s rewarding to finally reach construction completion.”
