Anzac Memorial Centenary Project

The Anzac Memorial Centenary Project completes Bruce Dellit’s original scheme for the Anzac Memorial in Hyde Park with the originally envisaged water cascade. Additionally, new underground exhibition and education spaces allow the Memorial to showcase its collection and deliver its education programs. The underground addition is organized around the new Hall of Service: this new public civic space is environmentally and visually connected to the existing Memorial and its park setting though an open oculus, a direct reference to the Memorial’s Well of Contemplation. New artworks conceived by Fiona Hall, including art featuring soil from 1701 localities in New South Wales listed as places of enlistment for World War I, have been carefully integrated within the Hall of Service and offer an opportunity to engage and reflect upon New South Wales past and current service.

“This Anzac Centenary Project not only realizes a vision from our past, it will continue to remind future generations of the contributions made by our servicemen and women. Johnson Pilton Walker, in collaboration with the Government Architect’s Office, have created a beautiful addition to one of Sydney’s most significant monuments.”
The Right Hon. Clover Moore, Lord Mayor of Sydney, July 2015
