State Library Victoria Vision 2020 redevelopment
The Vision 2020 redevelopment project will transform State Library Victoria, Australia's oldest and busiest public library and one of Victoria's most important cultural institutions.
At the heart of Vision 2020 is the refurbishment of the Library's incomparable heritage spaces, the creation of innovative new spaces for children and teenagers, and the reinvention of our services as we embrace new technologies and promote digital literacy and creativity for all Victorians.
The design is being led by an international, award-winning team combining the talents of Australasian design firm Architectus with Scandinavia's Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects, and is due for completion in 2020.
Vision 2020 is an A$88.1 million project funded by A$60.4 million from the Victorian Government, with the remainder to be raised through philanthropic support.
