A major new gallery in Sydney – MCA

April 21, 2012 § 1 Comment

New major art galleries don’t happen every day. The recently opened $53 million (AUD) redevelopment by architect, Sam Marshall with the Government Architect’s Office, of the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia at Circular Quay in Sydney then is an architectural event. This one has been years in the making via a circuitous master planning  route.

It’s fun as you expectantly approach the museum from the Quay. Will there be a comfortable tension with the original Art Deco gallery building?  The entry is a great lead in and once in, I was drawn to the roof terrace and went back down through the building looking at the galleries along the way. At the moment not all the spaces are open so you’re limited to the spaces that finger  into the old ones.  That’s enough for one outing anyway. Check it out.

  • Ouch! Do not like the new design. Seems to have no relationship with the original MCA. And looks very pedestrian from the photos…where is the innovation and ‘art’ ?
