– Last of the scaffolding removed
Following a major $53 million redevelopment, the MCA will reopen on 29th of March. A short two weeks before the opening the last bits of scaffolding that have been shrouding the facade have been removed.
The new parts of the building are caked in Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) panels. These panels cover the new wing and expanded, double height galleries on the George street side of the building.
Scaffolding has covered most of the new building for more than 6 months, but it’s all down now.
Late last year I created a time lapse capturing the removal of scaffolding from the new double hight galleries on the George Street side of the building. Watch it below (it’s better with sound).
Over the ensuing weeks my team and I have gathered a lot of footage of the changing building which we’ll be presenting during the opening and opening weekend.
