Macarthur Memorial Park
We have strived to create an architecture that is lasting, permanent and uniquely of this place. We have avoided any fashion of form, colour or material in favour of the timeless and lasting. Our proposal is founded on the universals of geometry, ground and sky as they frame our lives and our passing. The multi-faith nature of the complex is well understood, the need to serve well the unique ritual of the Catholic Liturgy, together with the many other faiths / religion as well as the purely secular, has lead us to propose an architecture of essentials.
