In our final exclusive interview with the winners at the 2013 World Architecture Festival in Singapore, architect Michael Rayner discusses the National Maritime Museum of China, which was crowned World Future Project of the Year 2013.

Set to be completed in 2015, the National Maritime Museum of China by Australian studio Cox Rayner Architects will be a 80,000 square metre museum located in Tianjin, China.

“China has been built on water,” says Rayner. “Not only has it been very much related to the sea, but it was built on canals and that’s how it evolved.”
