What makes a public building? John Macarthur reflects on differing perceptions and constructions of the public realm. Two very different new public facilities now grace Brisbane's Queensland Cultural Centre - the new Gallery of Modern Art and the redeveloped State Library of Queensland.

The author compares the architectural design of the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) at Queensland Art Gallery by Architectus and the State Library of Queensland by Donovan Hill and Peddle Thorp. In his opinion, some of the differences between the buildings are matters of architecture value that have received mixed opinions. He says that he was told GoMA was better than the State Library because its architecture did not get in the way of the art and it did not ask to be paid attention.

Review of the architecture of the Gallery of Modern Art and the State Library of Queensland.
