New Museum Project - Stage 2
Agency: Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Department of Finance and WA Museum
The New Museum for WA is being developed in the heart of the Perth Cultural Centre, scheduled to open in 2020. It will share the stories of Western Australia’s people and places, acting as a gateway for visitors to explore the extraordinary history, distinctiveness, creativity and diversity of our State and region.
Multiplex leads the team as the Managing Contractor for the Project, working with renowned international architects HASSELL+OMA. Construction is under way and works include a world class building with exciting visitor experiences, revitalised heritage-listed buildings, and the redevelopment of the external areas through landscaping in and around the New Museum to promote engagement, connectivity and collaboration. The design and display of Museum content, including collections, exhibitions, multimedia and artworks, will deliver outstanding visitor experiences.
