Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS+R) and Woods Bagot, with Studio Adrien Gardere, in charge of museography and design, were appointed for Adelaide Contemporary, international design competition organized by Arts South Australia and Malcolm Reading Consultants.

 

Adelaide Contemporary is a new cultural concept that places the idea of "contemporary" within a broader time framework, linking the history of Aboriginal culture, the historical and geographical richness of the Art Gallery of South Australia's collection, the perpetual present of festivals and events and art in the future.

 

This site, extended by connections with the immediate community, houses an art gallery, a "Super Lobby", open-air galleries, and a roof garden - an echo of the traditions of the Kauna people and the enhancement of the local flora present before colonization.

Combining curatorial experimentation and new modes of education of the Gallery of Time, Adelaide Contemporary will be a cultural incubator.
