Auckland War Memorial Museum.

Delivered On The Ground 2010

Landscape Architecture

“"In reflection we find a sense of history, a sense of place, a sense of who we are."”

Urbanlogic acted as the project landscape architects responsible for the delivery of the developed design, detail design package, construction drawings and technical specification, including landscape construction, for this challenging project, in one of Auckland’s highest profile locations.

The project has enhanced the strong heritage and cultural values of the area for the local community and tourists alike. Street furniture and paving materials have provided a unifying element throughout, seamlessly adding a ‘contemporary feel’ to a traditional style.

Selecting design elements in empathy with the context and setting has preserved the public respect held for the consecrated ground of the Cenotaph and Court of Honour. Large granite pavers have been introduced to the surrounds to match the architectural qualities and heritage value of the Museum and Cenotaph.

"In reflection we find a sense of history, a sense of place, a sense of who we are. Here, now, let us remember those who went before us, whose sacrifices gave us life. We are the children of the Fallen - we stand on their shoulders. Celebrate our Fallen, our Tupuna. Honour them with Peace."Abstract from the Koru Crest.
