2016 National Landscape Architecture Awards: Award for Cultural Heritage

Completion of the Courtyards at the Shrine of Remembrance by Rush\Wright Associates Cultural Heritage: Landscape Architecture Award Australian Institute of Landscape Architects

Jury comment
The Shrine of Remembrance looms large in Melbourne’s landscape, creating one of Australia’s most poignant sites of cultural memory.

Completing the major recent development of the Shrine, the new stage two courtyard gardens provide a fine addition to this much-visited and well-loved site. These courtyards are critical to the overall redevelopment plan and also add depth and expression as bespoke spaces with their own character. The jury was pleased to see that the conceptual integrity of the individual projects remains intact despite the long time span of the redevelopment, which is a testament to the vision and the continuation of the design process by the client, the Shrine of Remembrance Trustees.
