International award for the Sir John Monash Centre

The Sir John Monash Centre, the interpretation centre located at the Australian National Memorial in France, has received an International Architecture Award by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Centre for Architecture and Urban Studies, .

The awards are described as “the highest and most prestigious distinguished building awards program that honour new and cutting-edge design worldwide”.

The Sir John Monash Centre received the award in the Museums and Cultural Buildings category. The new building has been carefully integrated into the site of the Australian National Memorial, which opened in 1938, so it is not visible from the road. This maintains the original intent of the memorial site, as designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.

HAA was honoured to be part of this team. Congratulations to Cox Architecture, Tim Williams Architects and John Lampros Architects.
