Rush Wright Associates has been working with the Shrine and ARM Architecture since 2001 on a variety of commissions, including Stages One and Two of the Galleries of Remembrance project. This involved the staged fitout of the underground spaces of the Shrine and four new courtyards. The project is due to open late November 2014 in its current form, in time for the Centenary of the landings at Gallipoli, to be held in April 2015. In addition to the Galleries Project, RWA has worked on:
  • a Masterplan and Management Plan for the 11 hectare Shrine Reserve
  • construction of the Fromelles and Gallipoli memorials
  • preparation and implementation of a 5 year tree replacement plan 2010-2015
  • visualisation and design advice for the Women’s Memorial Garden
  • design and documentation for a new arrival sequence to Birdwood Avenue
  • design and documentation of alterations and additions to the post 1945 Memorial.

Illustrated here are details of the courtyards, the last two of which are nearing completion.
