In 1967 Prime Minister Harold Holt announced that the government would build an Australian National Gallery in Canberra to house the National Collection. Following Cabinet approval in 1970, the winning architect, Colin Madigan, was appointed to develop the complex that included the High Court of Australia on King Edward Terrace, in the Parliamentary Triangle in Parkes, Canberra.
The opening of the National Gallery in 1982 concluded a planning, design and construction period of fourteen years.
