Video: Watch the construction of Gehry's first building in Australia

  • 1 Comment

Earlier this week Frank Gehry cut the ribbon on his new building for the University of Technology (UTS) in Sydney - his first completed project in Australia

The time-lapse video shows the three year construction of the £90million Dr Chau Chak Wing Building, nicknamed the ‘paper bag’.

This month sees the official opening of the new Frank Gehry designed building for the University of Technology (UTS) in Sydney. His first in Australia.

The exterior has two distinct facades: one in glass mirroring the building’s city surroundings; the other built from undulating brickwork in Sydney sandstone.

The 11-storey building houses teaching and research space as well as office accommodation.

It has also become the latest landmark along the ‘cultural ribbon’ that now extends across the city from Utzon’s Sydney Opera House, Darling Harbour and The Good Lines Development.
