The New Museum for Western Australia has been completed in Perth’s cultural precinct, and exhibitions are currently being installed to allow the museum to open in November 2020. The 21,500 sq m museum was designed by Australian architect Hassell and Dutch firm Office for Metropolitan Architecture’s. It is made up of refurbished heritage buildings and newly built structures, which will house what the architects describe as a “collection of stories” over two internal intersecting circulation loops, one vertical and the other horizontal.

The development also contains the City Room, an outdoor public space in the centre of the museum that can accommodate large community events.

Works on display in the museum will include a meteorite collection and a blue whale skeleton; a large gallery holding temporary exhibits will complement the permanent features.

Hassell and OMA won a design competition for the project in August 2017.
