Extension of the Newcastle Art Gallery and Library by Darius Tham


LOCATION:  Newcastle Australia

The main concept is focused around the ideology of contemplation and walking, in which the cycles of modern living have caused us to lose contact with integral time and place. A tranquil and peaceful approach with a combination of shared facilities demonstrates that there is no reason for a building compound to serve as a single use but as a shared space through the opportunity of exchanging user and environment. This project focuses on healing an area which is defined as “making whole again”. This has been made distinct through strengthening the experience of sense of being by contrasting experiences of place and function through a permeable approach. This is aimed at people by reconnecting knowledge, culture and art creation in a single vicinity where the direct exchange creates a cultural HUB of discussion.
