The potential demolition of The Palace Theatre in Bourke Street, Melbourne has been used to develop a strategy for remembering shared spatial experiences. This project proposes a planned journey to the Palace Theatre, along which the participants will encounter a series of temporary installations. Each installation encourages public participation in experiences that embody and reproduce collective memories.

The Performed Memorial Journey speculates on how interior architecture can provide spatial solutions for embodying and reproducing memories. Through facilitating the transmission of memories to others, buildings such as the Palace Theatre will never be completely lost.
