Featured Project Description:
This book is an account of student work that has emerged from a dozen architecture and landscape architecture studios focused on Indigenous placemaking in Melbourne. Students have grappled with two key questions: Firstly, what new strategies might emerge for architecture and landscape architecture in Melbourne if time and place are conceptualised through an Indigenous lens? Secondly, how do we as designers, in the absence of many Indigenous architects, engage with other ways of knowing place?
