Architectus appointed to design new National Vietnam Veterans Museum
New design for Phillip Island’s National Vietnam Veterans Museum
Architectus, along with Tract, HipvHipe, TTW, Lilford Smith Design and The Maytrix Group, is excited to announce that we have been appointed to design the new National Vietnam Veterans Museum (NVVM) on Phillip Island, Victoria.
The NVVM is the only Australian museum dedicated to examining the experience of the Vietnam War veterans and the legacy of the war.
The Museum’s globally unique collection comprises over 40,000 items encompassing everything from aircraft and tanks to personal effects, models, and artworks. Many have been donated by veterans and provide a deeply personal and poignant insight to the Vietnam War.
Architectus Principal Sophie Cleland said, “It is a privilege to have the opportunity to design the new National Vietnam Veterans Museum. This new museum will include galleries and adaptable spaces for a wide range of programs and activities and at its core support the veterans community and generations of family members to come. It will be a place that provides and supports the heart and soul of this community; its people.”
