Creation of a very large new museum facility that also used the internal philosophy of the east and west build up of arms to internally display and preserve very large aircraft used post WW2.  The facility was also required to have conference and learning facilities for all ages to understand the fast technological advantages being made at that time.

The construction challenges included a sloping site and a very complex roof design with high volume roof rainwater discharge.
