AAA Short Black Talk: Architects in their Space – Ian McDougall

Ian McDougall will be talking about the design of ARM's Architecture’s additions to the Shrine Of Remembrance in the Kings Domain Melbourne. Ian McDougall is a Founding Director of ARM Architecture (formerly known as Ashton Raggatt & McDougall) The poignant Shrine of Remembrance was built as a memorial to the men and women of Victoria who served in World War I and is now a memorial to all Australians who have served in war. ARM Architecture designed additions to the existing structure in the form of four sunken zigzag-shaped courtyards, linking an undercroft housing the Galleries of Remembrance, Visitor’s Centre, offices, theatre and associated back-of-house spaces. "The Shrine tells such a significant story for Melburnians about a key part of Australia's identity. ARM wanted to heighten and add to that history, that lineage and all the culture that goes with it, rather than create a new statement.  ARM were working against the accepted wisdom that new architecture must be connected from old". The Australian Architecture Association is pleased to announce that they are once again a Strategic Partner for Melbourne Indesign, 12-13th August, 2016.   Tickets are $30 for early bird's (Sale ends August 5th) / $40 for public (Starts August 6th) / $25 or students or seniors and are available via Eventbrite HERE
