2023 Dezeen Awards: Bundanon Art Museum & Bridge

We are excited to share the news that Bundanon Art Museum & Bridge received a highly commended at the 2023 Dezeen Awards in the ‘Cultural Project of the Year’ category.


Australian practice Kerstin Thompson Architects designed additional facilities for the Bundanon Art Museum in New South Wales, including a flood bridge containing residences and educational spaces. The cluster of buildings is built to withstand the landscape’s conditions, pushing the museum underground and raising the education centre on a flood bridge.

The judges commented:
‘A series of sensitive and elegant additions to the landscape, this project responds to flood and fire risks in a way that promotes ecological awareness and creates generous spaces for living and learning.’

Thanks to the jury for recognising Bundanon and gratitude to our project team and collaborators.
