Gardens of Remembrance

The form for the Gardens of Remembrance project came to Philip late one afternoon as the office had emptied, the yellow trace came out and a cube-like form with little perforations leading you in to a cave like space emerged. It is a place for quiet repose, which sits within the broader garden context designed by Red Box Design Group.

The Gardens of Remembrance was awarded the Art in Architecture Award at the 2006 ACT AIA Awards.
