We're thrilled to have been selected by Historic England after our competition team (pictured) submitted designs for a new memorial in Bristol.
Our design will be shown alongside nine others in a free exhibition in September at The Workshop event space in Lambeth. Details of all the selected designs were announced in the Architect's Journal and more news will follow in August. You can follow both MSMR and the #immortalised hashtag on social media for updates.
Exhibition - Immortalised: the people loved, left and lost in our landscape
For millennia, we have celebrated and mourned, marked and memorialised. Through our culture, places, stories and rituals we pass down what matters to us. It is how we make people immortal. But who decides who and how we remember? Immortalised explores the ways people and events have been commemorated in England, by the statues, plaques, shrines and murals. It also reviews the challenging histories of some of those celebrated, and looks at how we might immortalise in the future, long after we are gone and perhaps, forgotten.
