museum building. Cantilevering at either end the curved wall, separated by a continuous glazed band of windows floats above the ground. At the western end the cantilever defines the new entry and café to St Jude Street whist at the eastern end provides an open aspect over the grounds of Glebe Park.

Internally the movement and sequencing through the gallery has been modified to reflect the contemporary nature of the proposed exhibitions. Each exhibition space varies in scale and form in response to the contents exhibited and in turn informs the overall articulation of the building. A simple palette of metal cladding, masonry with a tonal shift in green glazing provides a subtle backdrop to the park environment.

Fitted with sound passive sustainable initiatives, the Bradman Museum will reduce its impact on the environment. Water collection, water reuse, and photovoltaic cells for exterior lighting represent the state of the art in active initiatives.
