The Board of Immigration Place Australia is pleased to invite Expressions of Interest from design teams to participate in a single stage select competition for Immigration Place in Canberra – our National Capital.
We are committed to establishing a significant commemorative place for all Australians to meet, celebrate and reflect on our immigrant heritage and collective achievements. This place will be a beacon to welcome immigrants to their new home and it will encourage the continuing collection and sharing of past and future stories. In this way Immigration Place will be a special and memorable destination for all – one that will further enrich our national identity, culture and experience of country.
We are grateful to the Australian Government for reserving an outstanding site for Immigration Place within the Parliamentary Zone – the seat of government and in proximity to Australia’s most significant cultural institutions.
Our intention is to raise funds to engage the winning design team to develop their proposal for approval and ultimately for construction.
We look forward to receiving Expressions of Interest to participate in this competition. We are confident that the talented Australian design community will respond with imagination in translating our aspirations into a place worthy of the nation’s capital.
Lt Gen Laurie O’Donnell AC (Retd)
