SANAA revises expansion plans for sydney's art gallery of new south wales

in 2015, japanese firm SANAA was selected ahead of other established names — including david chipperfield, herzog & de meuron, and renzo piano — to extend the art gallery of new south wales as part of its ‘sydney modern project’. in june 2017, the australian institution announced that the NSW government had committed significant capital to fund its ambitious expansion plans. now, the gallery has lodged a ‘state significant development application’ with the NSW department of planning and environment for the project, which highlights some revisions from the previous design.

the application for the expansion, which is now on public exhibition, has been drawn up by SANAA alongside the project’s executive architect architectus. the plans illustrate a stand-alone structure, which is connected to the existing art gallery NSW building with an outdoor sculpture park. the change means that the development will occupy less green space and ensure better sightlines towards sydney’s famous harbor. see designboom’s previous coverage of the project here, and view detailed plans for the project on the NSW government website.
