Kingsford Smith Memorial
The external form of the museum was inspired by a traditional aircraft hangar shape – an appropriate resting place for the vintage Southern Cross aeroplane. The glass enclosure was designed to ensure the public experienced the aircraft at close quarters without direct sunlight. Unwanted radiation is excluded by incorporating generous overhangs to the North, the glass wall to the South is shaded by fins to exclude direct sun as is the roof on the East and West, which fall to meet the Earth beneath.
