Did you know that the Australian War Memorial was not part of Walter Burley Griffins original Canberra plan?

Part talk, part performance. AWM artist-in-residence Chris Latham will be joined by ACT Chapter president of the Australian Institute of Architects, Philip Leeson as they unpack the design principles and symbology behind the geometric design of Canberra.

Also a renowned violinist, Latham will also be joined on stage by pianist Edward Neeman, as they perform the Australian Premier of composer Peter Latham’s work for piano and violin. Composed 100 years ago, after war injuries prevented Peter from fulfilling his dream as a solo pianist, these works echo the need to grieve and heal through design and creativity.

This event is run as part of the 2019 DESIGN Canberra Festival.
