The National Gallery of Victoria’s 2018 Architecture Commission External link, designed by MUIR Architecture and landscape architecture studio Openwork creates a dramatic series of chasms for visitors to explore. ‘Doubleground’ is a multi-level installation that responds to the architectural elements the NGV International building designed by Sir Roy Grounds. The design references the triangular patterns of the roof and glass wall of the Great Hall.
