Didn't the original proposal for a modern art gallery come from the Art Gallery of South Australia to provide more space for it to display more of its collection and visiting exhibitions, and the proposal for an indigenous culture gallery come from the South Australian Museum so that it could have more space.
The proposal from the SA Museum came because the Adelaide Contemporary announced aboriginal art as part of its program (the Gallery of Time component), and the Museum chucked a tanty because they believe everything Aboriginal is "their" thing. Prior to that, the museum was pursuing an expansion on their current site.

Would bring much joy if they considered the Bjarke Ingels Group and JPE Design Studio Contemporary submission for use as the Indigenous Gallery/Museum. Design is best represented in this video... https://vimeo.com/264263011

The image of the proposed gallery released by the Liberal Party ahead of last year's state election is bland and disconnected from the Botanic Gardens.

Aesthetically, the JPE design is the most interesting, unlike any other building in the city, feels most like it would adapt to multiple purposes and furthermore, the snaking rooftop path might find its place representing the Rainbow Serpent story from Indigenous Dreaming.
The Liberals are proposing to spend only $60 million versus $250 million for the Adelaide Contemporary project. Architectural expectations will have to be correspondingly downgraded.

A $60M budget was mentioned in the InDaily article, but it’s misleading.

There is $60M allocated for this project in the 2020/21 state budget, with the remaining budget to be confirmed after the business case is prepared.

To building anything decent and iconic would require a $200M+ investment I would have thought.

The $60 million figure was in the article that prompted this discussion. Not to mention in the budget last year.

$60M is the 2020/21 budget allocation for the building (early in the build process), not the entire building budget. The entire budget is yet to be determined.

Not much to see now, the site has been demolished and levelled . Only a couple of truck loads of rubble to go.
Pict 9/2/2019. It looks like demolition of the semi circular building has started.(click on picture for bigger image . Something has happened to the way pictures get up loaded??)
