Australian Museum – Crystal Hall

The Australian Museum is the nation’s oldest and one of it’s most important scientific research, educational and cultural institutions. The new Crystal Hall entry project is a feature glass clad, steel framed structure of slender structural proportions and refined complex structural detailing.

The structural design is responsive to the site and heritage building constraints as the new building stands 3.0m off the existing museum and provides only a discreet new link way into the existing building thereby minimising risk and disturbance to the museum operations and curatorial assets, providing a new energy efficient world class entry and circulation area while adding the first new exhibition space to the Museum in 50 years.
