2016 & Beyond - The Height of Achievement
More than a building, Australia Square is a symbol of groundbreaking innovation that continues to inspire Sydneysiders into the 21st century. In 1967, it was dubbed by the press as “a triumph”, “beauty in concrete for Sydney” and “a work of art without equal in Australia”, descriptions that still fit perfectly today.
The extraordinary legacy of Australia’s most influential architect endures, evident in the popularity of the 2014 Museum of Sydney exhibition, Harry Seidler: Painting Toward Architecture. The exhibition revealed artworks from the Seidler family collection and featured works by some of the greatest names in modern art and architecture with whom Seidler collaborated, including Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, Oscar Niemeyer, Max Dupain, Josef Albers, Frank Stella, Piere Luigi Nervi, Alexander Calder, Sol LeWitt and Lin Utzon.
