The centrepiece of a $1.7 billion revamp of the Southbank arts and culture precinct will be the new National Gallery of Victoria’s Contemporary building and arts centre.
Recently unveiled, the new Contemporary sector of the NGV is set to be a huge tourist attraction, putting Victoria amongst the finest destinations in the world for art and culture.
The gallery has been designed by architecture firm Angelo Candalepas and Associates and will feature arched entries, education spaces, science laboratories for art conservation and a rooftop terrace.
The gallery site will sit at 77 Southbank Boulevard, behind the NGV International building and opposite the ABC building. It is set to also be surrounded by new gardens, restaurants and a retail precinct.
The local government estimates the project will create more than 11,000 jobs during the construction phase, and many more once the project is finalised.
