PRESENTERS / TONY ALLEN AND JEREMY STEWART

Tony Allen, Managing Director, ARM Architecture

Jeremy Stewart, Senior Associate, ARM Architecture

In 1923 Hudson and Wardrop designed The Shrine of Remembrance. Inspired by the unbuilt battlements of the 1923 scheme the ARM Architecture design for the redevelopment of The Shrine was finally completed in 2014.

The ARM scheme creates four symmetrical courtyards mimicking the battlements, dug into the terrace rather than built upon it. This significant upgrade required building subterranean accommodation below The Shrine mounds and within the Undercroft of the building.

In addition to the courtyards, new education and administration areas, ARM’s design includes a major conversion of the Undercroft into an exhibition space now called the Galleries of Remembrance which features the Devanha Landing boat used in the landing of Australian troups at Gallipoli in 1915.

The new facilities accommodate an increased level of visitation further enhancing The Shrine’s pre-eminence as the key war memorial in Victoria, and expanding its role as a place of commemoration and community learning, now and into the future

Hear from Tony and Jeremy how they have brought the original design of The Shrine to reality in 2015.
