Then there's news of a massive coup for Queensland firm, Cox Rayner Architects, winning an international architecture competition to design The National Maritime Museum of China - the first national public building competition in China ever won by a Queensland architecture practice, and only the second by an Australian practice (the first being the Beijing ‘Water Cube').

From some 80 worldwide architects, eight were selected to compete, with three chosen as finalists. The international standing of the competition attracted many of the world's foremost architects such as Zaha Hadid (UK), Stephen Holl (USA), Preston Scott Cohen (USA), GMP (Germany) and EMBT (Spain).
The Museum is to be developed in Tianjin, China's fourth largest city (22 million), and the major port city for northern China. It is about 100 kilometres east of Beijing. The Museum is situated on a bay with a large parkland forming part of the project. It will be 80,000 square metres and construction cost is estimated at AUD $290 million. Exhibition fitout is to be another AUD $80 million.
Our congratulations and looking forward to news of opportunities for other Australian businesses across diverse sectors, including marine!
