South West Australia is home to a number of world class surf beaches and has been a surf destination since the 1950s. The Surf Museum project is intended as both a virtual and physical repository and resource to engage with a growing global surfing community. From entry level, the spiral building ascends in one direction to a panoramic viewing gallery;in the other descends underground to form further gallery spaces. The buildings roof, accessible from ground level takes the form of a sculpted skate park. An online presence is being developed to build advocacy and generate (crowd) funding.
