Gehry UTS Building

We visit this amazing building in both our Essential Sydney and Sydney Neighbourhoods Private Tours

Officially known as the Dr Chau Chak Wing Building at UTS (the University of Technology Sydney) it is colloquially known as “the brown paper bag building”. Designed by the Canadian world renowned architect, Frank Gehry it is his only Australian building.

The buildings facade is made of 320,000 custom designed bricks and a fascinating yet tedious construction process was employed. You have to feel for the bricklayers. Do not miss this.
