Twelve local and international practices have been invited to participate in a two-stage competition for the “Sydney Modern Project,” a $450 million expansion of the Art Gallery of New South Wales (NSW). Five practices from the shortlist, which also includes SANAA, Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, and Herzog & de Meuron, will move on to produce conceptual designs in the competition’s final round.

“The Sydney Modern vision for expansion and transformation is much more than just a building project,” stated gallery director Dr. Michael Brand. “Through this invited competition the Gallery is seeking ideas that will create an architecturally ambitious, intelligent, sensitive, sustainable and highly functional design. Our site overlooking Sydney Harbor will inspire each of the invited architectural practices, all of whom have extraordinary design skills.”

The invited architectural practices are…

  • Candalepas Associates; Sydney
  • David Chipperfield Architects; London
  • Fender Katsalidis; Melbourne
  • Herzog & de Meuron; Basel
  • Kazuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishizawa / SANAA; Tokyo
  • Kengo Kuma & Associates; Tokyo
  • Kerry Hill Architects; Singapore
  • Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos; Madrid
  • RPBW (Renzo Piano Building Workshop); Genoa
  • RMA Architects (Rahul Mehrotra Architects); Mumbai
  • Sean Godsell Architects; Melbourne
  • Tod Williams and Billie Tsien Architects; New York

“Each of the invited practices has demonstrated exemplary architecture and space making at a variety of different scales and has demonstrated capacity to relate built projects to place and landscape,” added Brand. 

A winner will be announced in April 2015. The project is expected to be complete in 2021, just in time for the 150th anniversary of the Gallery.
