AAA Special Talk: The Imperative of Place presented by Julian Lipscombe - Director, Bennetts Associates (UK)

1710 d1
2 Formal CPD Points
Duration: 01:12:02

For Bennett’s Associates, the evolution of their approach to urbanism has been characterised by two themes: a preoccupation with human scale in the city and a drive to achieve directiveness of place. They are determined to resist the cult of ‘object’ buildings that relegate the space occupied by the city’s inhabitants as being of secondary importance. 

They also strive for developments, places and cities that are identifiably connected to context, be it cultural, historical or environmental and reject the ever more depressing tide of globalised architecture that has swept the planet in the three decades they have been practicing.

This talk by Julian Lipscombe is a part of their story.

AAA Short Black Talk: The Melbourne SHRINE OF REMEMBRANCE presented by Ian McDougall, Founding Director of ARM Architecture

1 Formal CPD Point
Duration: Duration: 00:49:04

The Shrine of Remembrance is Melbourne’s most visible and poignant war memorial.

The Shrine is significantly raised above the surrounding park, for architectural and monumental impact. It sits upon massive brick columns that create a vast dirt-floor undercroft inside a grassy mound. Originally, there were no facilities for the Shrine volunteers or Victoria Police guards who worked there and no disability access. Veterans in wheelchairs had to be carried up the steps.

ARM’s additions have expended it from purely a monument to be an exhibition space and education facility. The design is full of references and symbols to Australians at war.
In this talk, presented in the Shrine auditorium, Ian describes the long process to achieve resolution of the design.
