The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) Community Hall

'The Community Hall seeks to expand the vocabulary of architectural expression and engages in the articulation of complex issues, such as the representation of a city's culture and identity. The Community Hall for Melbourne Now is a flexible multi-use space that creates a bold statement of inclusivity and egalitarianism at the front door of NGV International. Drawing inspiration from the social and cultural spaces of Victorian communities, Community Hall takes tradition to new heights through cutting-edge architecture and dynamic programming. The space offers a hub of activity positioned at the heart of Melbourne Now.
