Maritime Services Building (Museum of Contemporary Art), Sydney (Winter 2001)

Digital InnovationsNew South Wales, Preservation

The Mayor of Sydney is leading a push to replace one of Sydney’s most prominent Art Deco buildings, the old Maritime Services Building which currently houses the Museum of Contemporary Art, with an office/cinema complex. The latest news is that Green Bans have been placed on the building by the union movement. Hopefully the bans will be as effective as those imposed in the 70s, which ensured the preservation of many of Sydney’s historic buildings and precincts.MaritimeServicesBuilding
