This is an extension to the NZ Maritime Museum in Auckland, which is designed as an exhibition building for NZL32, the yacht which first won the America's Cup for New Zealand. NZL32 is suspended within the existing buildings, and takes its place within an exhibition entitled 'Blue Water Black Magic', a tribute to the life of Sir Peter Blake, the round-the-world yachting legend who managed the Cup campaign and who was shot to death in 2002 on an environmental expedition along the Amazon. The building is located opposite the busy Princess Wharf, home to many bars, restaurants and apartments. Completed in 2009 the building has become a focus of attention during the day and even more so at night when lighting will emphasise the transparency.
