Chinese Memorial Gardens - Kalgoorlie
The Memorial Garden was created to celebrate and honour the many immigrants who came to Australia during the gold rush period.
The garden was designed and built entirely by hand by a large team of traditional artisans who build heritage buildings in China. It took this specialised team 12 months to build the garden using only traditional building methods, without the use of a single power tool.
Publik were asked to design a series of interpretive elements that would complement the tranquillity and reflect the garden’s traditional styling. It began with a large stone entry statement located inside the entry pagoda and in honour of the traditional craftsmanship, the stone was sourced and hand cut from the same province in China as the garden’s heritage. All the other elements were crafted by Publik in their workshop and carefully relocated into the Kalgoorlie garden.More about this project >
