A 50-metre-tall steel arch will be installed on George Street outside Sydney Town Hall, as part of the City of Sydney’s new public art project.

Cloud Arch, designed by Tokyo’s Junya Ishigami, will ensure the Sydney CBD will never look the same again. It will act as a gateway to the new pedestrianised and light rail sector of George Street.

It’s one of three new artworks announced by Lord Mayor Clover Moore, alongside a 13.7-metre-high oversized milk crate in Belmore Park near Central Station, and bronze bird sculptures near the Kent Street underpass on Bridge and Grosvenor Streets. They’re the first announcements as part of Sydney’s $9.3 million public art plan, and are due to be installed in 2017.
