Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre information
No, you’re not in Texas. They like to do things big in Sydney too: this behemoth on Darling Harbour’s western edge, for example. It was designed by Aussie architect Philip Cox, who also did the Sydney Aquarium and the Maritime Museum (unsurprisingly he’s been quoted as saying, ‘Sydney is unimaginable without Darling Harbour').
The Exhibition Centre on the south end has steel masts from which the roof dangles; the Convention Centre is the rounder bit nearer the harbour. At the time of writing, the state government was planning to modify or replace these buildings with, you guessed it, something bigger. In any case they're likely to be closed for three years from late 2013.
