Today’s project highlight

The Cairns Institute, Cairns, Australia
By Woods Bagot Architecture

Proposing a concept that will celebrate the rainforest setting, and enrich the place experience was a winning formula for Woods Bagot and RPA Architects who have been awarded the design of The Cairns Institute, headquartered on the James Cook University (JCU) Cairns campus. A $25 million project, the Institute will be a research hub, housing specialists in the social sciences, humanities, law and business sectors to examine the issues of importance to people in the tropics. Putting the Cairns Institute and JCU on the international stage to attract post-graduate students from around the globe; and to enable the university to draw a high caliber of researchers was key to the winning design.

Architecture profession (Down Under) leads surge in country’s employment

News brief – October 2010

Via Architecture & Design 

A rebound in the architecture profession is helping drive the overall labor market recovery in Australia.  Commenting on the rise in the official labor force figures yesterday, Westpac chief economist Bill Evans attributed the growth to a rebound in professions in law and architecture.  “They’re quick to fire, but they’re quick to rehire as well,” says Evans.  Mr. Evans was forecasting the unemployment rate to bottom out at 4.8 per cent halfway through next year.
