National Police Memorial | Matthew Tobin + Fairweather Proberts

• July 17, 2010

Australia-based Urban Art Projects (UAP) Principal Matthew Tobin was part of the design team headed by architects Fairweather Proberts that won a national design competition to design Australia’s National Police Memorial. A 27-metre textured bronze wall serves as the main architectural element and is adorned with 1200 touchstone plaques inscribed with the names of the fallen officers.

Etched into the facetted and undulating pavement are personal messages from loved ones of those who have died.
