Opened in 2002, the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art is a very urban building,
yet resembles a large, rusting agriculturalshed, like those seen in rural Australia. Set within a landscape of roads, train lines and warehouses, architects Roger Wood and Randall Marsh said they wanted to create a sculpture in which to show art. The abstract steel exterior is in stark contrast to the glass foyer, which is accesed by the only obvios opening in the building, and the four white- walled gallery spaces of varying sizes. ACCA shows work by international and Australian contemporary artists, such as Barbara Kruger, Gillian Wearing and Callum Morton.
