Cox Architecture To Design New North Queensland Stadium
A great way to transition from 2016 – 2017 with our appointment to design the newest stadium for Queensland in Townsville.
“The Cox team’s elegant design, innovative facility planning and strong local collaboration, including their genuine local input and partnership impressed the evaluation panel.” Department of State Development, Queensland Government
The North Queensland Stadium is a wonderful opportunity to continue Cox’s contribution to Australia’s sporting infrastructure and to provide the region with a facility that is as visually impactful as it is suitable to its purpose as a platform for sport and as a galvanising social apparatus for the local community.
“The stadium design is an expression of tropical Queensland and North Queensland in particular,” said Richard Coulson, project director at Cox Architecture. “It combines structural, functional and operational aspects of international modern stadiums with engagement of the environment that is quintessentially Queensland.” Richard Coulson, speaking to Architecture AU.
Congratulations to the team in Brisbane under Rich Coulson and Brendan Gaffney who lead the process and thanks to all the other contributors within the Group who ensured our best and most relevant talents were brought to bear – especially Philip Cox himself.
