Three dramatic spiral staircases, clad in Nordic Brass copper alloy, announce intersecting looped pathways helping visitors to explore intuitively a new Australian museum.
The WA Museum Boola Bardip in the Perth Cultural Centre, designed by international design practices Hassell + OMA, effectively takes up a whole city block. It was conceived as a series of virtual ‘stories’ that guide visitors through the major galleries to experience the State’s collections. The design aims to make wandering up and down the Nordic Brass staircases, between restored heritage-listed buildings and the new contemporary development, feel seamless to visitors.
The extensive Nordic Copper range of architectural copper products is available from Aurubis, part of the world’s leading integrated copper group and largest copper recycler. A growing series of ‘copper stories’ showcase the diversity of alloys, surfaces, forms and applications available with Nordic Copper today.
