Dawes Point Interpretive Installation
Dawes Point, Sydney, Australia
Interpretation design of the site which featured the colony’s first battery (military fort) and Sydney’s first observatory.
It took seven years and $2.8 million worth of archaeological investigation and interpretation to uncover and display the remnants of buildings which in different times were an observatory and a fort on one of Sydney’s oldest sites.
The interpretation displays tell the chronology of the site and various points of interest.
SHFA received the Lloyd Rees Award & the Conservation Architecture Award in 2002 from the AIA NSW chapter.
