JPW has been working with the Australian War Memorial for more than a decade, and have undertaken a range of projects from masterplanning and feasibility studies to major building projects and exhibitions. JPW was first commissioned in 2001 to prepare a Site Development Plan to direct future development of this nationally significant site. The Eastern Precinct project was the culmination of works forecast by the 2006 development plan. This key document is updated every five years and JPW is currently working on the next iteration of the plan.
“The Australian War Memorial Eastern Precinct Development is an outstanding recipient of the Canberra Medallion. It demonstrates architectural mastery and excellence at every level, and represents the culmination of the precinct master plan and many years of attentive work by Johnson Pilton Walker.”
