What the Client Needed
RMIT wanted to reinforce the concept of a connection between Indigenous Country and people in and around a new building.
What We Did
We used our Indigenous Design Consultation Pillars as the basis for consulting a broad range of stakeholders to determine how best to reveal and celebrate Indigenous knowledge systems, traditions, motifs & people, and amplify Indigenous culture throughout the space.
The importance of engaging with a cross-section of stakeholders such as the Wurundjeri Tribe Land and Compensation and Cultural Heritage Council was fundamental to the success of the design outcome.
The new building has now become a significant addition to the cultural and campus life of the University and has increased the visibility and recognition of the importance of Indigenous culture.
