Sydney Concert Hall

Project by Josh Harrex

The brief was to design a new concert hall located in the Sydney Royal Botanical Gardens. The proposal is perched off the underdeveloped and underutilized young precinct shore in Sydney Harbour. The design serves to tie the park back into the city as the end to the foreshore walk. An existing crane on the site dominates the skyline of the park. The building design then acts to enhance and appropriate this structure in the setting. The architecture aims to become a visual icon for the park, the harbour and city. It utilizes the site’s exceptional landscape and skyline to its advantage. The articulation of form serves to frame the Opera house and the Hammerhead crane, adopting the attributes of the crane itself.
