The government’s decision to construct a new embassy reinforces the strength of Australia’s relationship with the United States while promoting a vision of a contemporary and innovative Australia. The winning design embodies the spirit of Australia through direct references to the distinctive Australian landscape: its bright and clear natural light and open skies, its warm materiality and its vast scale. The use of these associations will create a civic building and symbol of Australia that is welcoming and enduring.
