Bài mẫu (Sample Answer)
The maps depict the changes made to an Australian art gallery from 1950 up to now.
The initial impression from the maps is that the gallery underwent a number of significant changes, with the most prominent being the conversion of the courtyard into a functional part of the building’s internal structure and the addition of a restroom.
Most notably, the inner space of the gallery is considerably enhanced by converting the outdoor courtyard into indoor facilities to serve the various needs of visitors. The interior of the gallery consists of three parts. The East wing focuses mainly on the display of art from various continents of the world. In 1950, only arts from Europe and Asia were presented, now the displays have become more diverse as arts from Australia are included as well.
Prior to the refurbishment, the sculpture section was located in the middle, near the courtyard, facing the entrance to the South. Following the renovation, this area lies at the center of the gallery and serves as a gateway to other sections of the complex. The area which was part of the courtyard has transformed into a place to display arts by the indigenous Australians.
The West Wing of the gallery offers other value-added services. The temporary exhibition and the bookshop retained their spots in the bottom left corner of the building. The size of the café has been reduced in half to make way for a toilet. To the North of the West wing, a children art school has been opened, alligning itself with the Australian art sections.
