NES MEMORIAL by ASPECT Studios
The National Emergency Services Memorial honors the thousands of men and women who serve and have served in Australia’s emergency services. The memorial provides a place to reflect on those who have fallen or perished while carrying out their duties for the benefit of the wider Australian community. The spirit of the emergency services is embodied in this single, powerful gesture of the memorial. In one instance the memorial breaks from the gentle continuity of the surrounding landscape, evoking the catastrophic events that call the Emergency Services into action. And on the other, the memorial becomes an inward folding form offering protection and comfort to all Australians during these times of tragedy.
