With materiality and form that echoes its surrounds on Lake Burley Griffin, the National Emergency Service Memorial is the product of an extensive and detailed design and fabrication process. Techniques that had not been used in Australia previously were developed specifically for this project to allow a remarkable level of detail and scale of composition. The Memorial draws the viewer into a complex sense of shared human experience with those who serve in the Emergency Services. The curved and folded wall – referencing both emergency tarpaulins and blankets – reflects the warmth of the sun captured within its mass and gives shelter from wind off the water. It directs views across the water to other Australian icons; Parliament House, the High Court and Commonwealth Place.
