Museum of Contemporary Art Redevelopment
The redevelopment of the MCA seeks to provide facilities which will consolidate its position as Australia’s leading contemporary art museum.
The redevelopment comprises:
--a six level addition to the north of the existing MCA building
--a two storey addition on the George Street side of the existing building to house new gallery space
--a rooftop addition to the existing building to provide new venue spaces
--internal remodelling of the existing building
--landscaping to the Circular Quay side of the building, including new terraces at Level 1.
The new additions provide a positive and strong architectural response to the block-like form of the existing sandstone building.
The new wing to the north of the existing building provides a clear and accessible public entry and circulation system. It houses a new gallery space, loading dock, café, and National Centre for Creative Learning.
To realise the project Architect Marshall and the Government Architect’s Office formed an association that effectively utilised their respective skills. Sam Marshall of Architect Marshall acted as the project architect with primary design responsibility, while the Government Architect’s Office provided a strategic review role for all stages, and led the project team during the documentation phase.
