City of Albany
Albany, Western Australia
The ANZAC Centenary has a particularly special meaning to Albany. On November 1, 1914, from King George Sound, the convoy of Australian and New Zealand troops departed Australia for Gallipoli and the Western Front. On this day, in 2014 Albany hosted a program of events and activities to mark the ANZAC Centenary. To accommodate the busy event program, the City upgraded several key public spaces. PLACE Laboratory assisted the City of Albany in preparing a package of concepts, perspectives and diagrams for the Town Square, Stirling Terrace, and National ANZAC Centre Memorial Garden at Princess Royal Fort, to illustrate the potential of the spaces and gain support for the projects from both internal and external stakeholders. PLACE Laboratory followed through with the design and documentation of the Town Square which has become a key feature of Albany’s main street.
