The architects for the Monument are Donald Insall Associates.
With over forty years' experience in the care, repair and
adaptation of Britain's historic buildings, as well as in the
design of new buildings in sensitive areas, Donald Insall Associates
has designed the settings for a number of statues and memorials
in the centre of London.
Attention to detail and an understanding of planning, landscaping
and modern and traditional construction methods have enabled
the architects to design the setting for the Monument. This involves
reconfiguring the existing granite structure on the site and
working with the sculptor to form an exciting sculptural monument.
Recent similar designs by Donald Insall Associates have been
the setting and design of the plinth for the In-Pensioner statue
(cast by Morris Singer) at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, which
received a Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Environment
Award Commendation in 2001 and the setting for the Raoul Wallenberg
Memorial (cast by Morris Singer), winner of a Civic Trust Award
in 2002. They are currently designing the setting for the Animals
in War memorial in Park Lane.
The competition to choose a sculptor for the Battle of Britain
monument was organised by Tony Dyson of the Architects.
