Songlines connect places to people and inform us how to sustain ourselves in someone else’s Country. This in-depth study for Curtin University interprets two songlines and integrates Indigenous knowledge into meaningful design outcomes for all people.
The design team has created an exemplary standard for design guidance, successfully encompassing the social, cultural, physical and spiritual elements that determine community and environmental wellbeing. The landscape architects and client are to be commended for their broad vision. In revealing the richness of the local ecological and cultural landscape, this project will ultimately underpin an exceptional contemporary university culture.
