Sydney Modern Project

Expansion of the Art Gallery of New South Wales is the largest government and philanthropic partnership of its kind to date in the Australian arts. Creating a vibrant new cultural hub, the Sydney Modern Project will almost double the current gallery space. WSP worked with Atelier Ten and the Art Gallery of New South Wales during the design phase to ensure the project achieved ecologically sustainable design outcomes.
