Chorley – War Memorial Competition Entry
We were invited to contribute an entry for this competition to design a Garden of Reflection at Astley Park in Chorley. The brief was to design a performance space to accommodate events, engage the local community and raise awareness of issues affecting the armed forces. Our response featured a ‘ramphitheatre’ leading from the existing ground level down to the performance space, which allowed for different seating terraces with disabled access. The performance space is marked and covered by a sculptural brass canopy, poetic in form and instantly recognisable.
