Australian War Memorial Lighting Masterplan

Positioned across the nation’s Parliament House, the building is enhanced with a respectful lighting scheme which strikes a balance between the subtle and commemorative lighting language, respectful of the building’s narrative, and the dramatic enhancement of its position as one of the world’s great national monuments.

Lighting, enhancing key elements of the history, heritage and architectural form of the building, creates a strong personal and intimate connection for those who saw their loved ones go to war, and embraces darkness, equally respecting the night sky and surrounding environment.
