dc.description.abstractThis thesis addresses the vibrant and divisive discourse surrounding architectural memorialisation. Contemporary debates on memorial architecture are often centred on the exclusion of certain groups and their perspectives. This proposal argues that memorials have the potential to positively impact our relationship to shared memory through an open, inclusive, and participatory form of remembrance. To achieve this, the thesis employs abstract, spatial representation as a framework that supports the addition of iconic forms. Together this creates a memorial that appeals to a broad range of sensibilities, with no prescribed subject matter or user. A material palette that invites change acknowledges the passage of time as an influence on our shared memories. Complemented by an educational program and event spaces that further broaden possibilities for engagement this composes the design of a flexible memorial complex capable of adapting to the needs of a changing audience and understanding of history.en_US
