Museum of Contemporary Art, Mordant Wing

The George Street entrance of the Mordant Wing of the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia at The Rocks. The original museum building, which was the former Maritime Services Board Building built in the art deco architectural style in 1952. The museum was opened in 1991 as the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney. The Mordant Wing, designed by Sam Marshall, was built in 2012 as part of an expansion and redevelopment.


  1. Very original and modern building! Arianna

  2. I see that one must stand in the entrance to read the name of the building. Very arty.

  3. If you have a minute, I’d really appreciate it if you took a look at Emily’s Virtual Rocket. This is a serious newsblog which has been taken from e-newspapers and e-magazines from around the world, with an emphasis on transgender issues. Also, with his election, I look for articles which critique Donald Trump.

    I hope you enjoy this. Please paste the following:

    If you like it, please consider putting it among your favorite blogs. I would greatly appreciate it.



  4. I would normally not like modern architecture for a state institution, especially not at The Rocks. But for the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, it is perfect.

    1. I must admit, I wasn't impressed by the design when it opened, but it's grown on me somewhat.

  5. What a building! It reminds me of shipping container buildings.

  6. Great shot. I love that Lego Block design. It's a style that sometimes looks out of place, but here I think it works well.
    We have a famous building with that type of design here too. Hey I think you just gave me an idea for a future post - thanks ;-)

  7. Love the beautiful abstract design, and especially the glitters emanating from where the doors are. Have a great weekend!

  8. Almost an abstract style sign to suit the artistic essence of the building...
