Sydney Modern Project

The Art Gallery of New South Wales expansion

At our magnificent site in Sydney, where extraordinary beauty is overlaid by complex world histories, we are transforming our much-loved Art Gallery of New South Wales into a 21st-century art museum that will inspire both local and international audiences.

The Sydney Modern Project will create a global art museum for a global city with new and expanded spaces for art, live performance and film along with spaces to study and participate in cultural programs.

Through the creative collaboration between the Gallery and SANAA, our new building will enrich Sydney’s eastern cultural precinct, strengthening links with the local community and improving access between the Gallery, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney Harbour, the Sydney Opera House, the CBD and Woolloomooloo.
