The proposals include an innovative reintroduction of natural daylight into the South Hall and improvements to the infrastructure of the historic gallery. New openings and routes will improve connections and reinforce visitor flow and orientation across the museum. A new creative studio space will also be created in the 1911 Emslie Hall providing the museum with a large and central flexible display and event space. The designs have been developed by Rick Mather Architects and Bat Studio in collaboration with Ralph Appelbaum Associates.
