Abstract:A decision was made in 1994 to construct a new museum for Melbourne and the contract was won by international architectural competition which resulted in the 150 million USD project. The scheme forms a campus of individual buildings for specific use, connected by public pedestrian ways. A new 900-space, two-level underground car park between the Royal Exibition Building and its new Museum neighbour has on its roof the Event Plaza. Access to the Museum is via a 20 m high, glazed wall leading to the foyer and to an Orientation Galleria, leading to other public areas.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
SEI is printed in Switzerland; ISSN 1016-8664; E-ISSN 1683-0350
