Adjaye and Chipperfield’s Adelaide gallery designs revealed

Adjaye Associates and BVN's concept design for the Adelaide Contemporary gallery

Diller Scofidio & Renfro and BIG also shortlisted for £140m contemporary complex

The culture agency responsible for delivering a £140m gallery complex in the Australian city of Adelaide has released concept images of designs for the project by the six shortlisted architectural teams.

Arts South Australia last year picked Adjaye Associates, Bjarke Ingels Group, David Chipperfield Architects, Diller Scofidio & Renfro – each of which is teamed with a domestic practice – among the bid teams it wanted to work up ideas. The shortlist also includes a team led by Melbourne-based Hassell, which features New York practice SO-IL; and a Japan-Australia collaboration bringing together Adelaide-based Khai Liew, Sydney-based Durbach Block Jaggers, and Tokyo’s Office of Ryue Nishizawa.
