Added protection of the ‘at-risk’ Powerhouse Museum Complex, Ultimo

Notice of Intention

Docomomo Australia has made a submission in support of the proposed extension of State Heritage Register listing of the Ultimo Power House site to encompass the 1988 museum buildings (Wran Wing and tramshed building) in addition to the original power house. Docomomo Australia has repeatedly advised that the 1988 museum buildings are of high cultural significance in terms of their aesthetic significance, their social significance and their historical significance and should be retained in future remodeling of the museum site. The building was awarded the RAIA Sulman Award in 1988 and it is listed on the AIA’sRegister of Significant Buildings.
