Pritzker Prize Laureates Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, of Japanese practice SANAA, have emerged victorious from an international design competition for the expansion of Art Gallery of NSW, also known as Sydney Modern.

An international seven-member jury, which included Australian Pritzker Laureate Glenn Murcutt, unanimously selected a winner from a shortlist of five international practices.

SANAA’s design consists of a series of pavilions reaching out towards neighbouring cultural landmarks including the Domain, Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Woolloomooloo.
