The Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW) has revealed the winners of an international design competition to build a $450 million extension dubbed the ‘Sydney Modern Project’ by 2021.
The design by the Tokyo-based firm SANAA features pavilions that open on to the Domain and the Royal Botanic Gardens, with sweeping views of Sydney Harbour and Woolloomooloo, in the city’s east.
AGNSW director Michael Brand said it was a unanimous decision to appoint the Japanese architects from a field of 12 companies from around the world.
