November 2015

Background

In February 2015, the NSW Premier the Hon Mike Baird announced that Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum would be moved to Parramatta and the existing site at Ultimo would be sold to developers, if the Coalition Government were re-elected. The Powerhouse Museum, opened in 1988, is the major arm of the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS), which has existed in Ultimo in various forms for over 125 years. MAAS holds a vast collection encompassing technology; transport; health and medicine; physical sciences; engineering; architecture and the built environment; design and decorative arts; and contemporary culture.

The majority of the MAAS collection is in storage, providing exciting opportunities for a new museum in western Sydney in addition to the Powerhouse.

Design is not about decorating functional forms - it is about creating forms that accord with the character of the object and that show new technologies to advantage.
