Balarinji Managing Director, Ros Moriarty, was recently interviewed by Australian Design Review and discussed how Indigenous design is a really exciting idea for architects, allowing new creative ways of considering how Australia’s built form can become something unique and enrich us as a community and a nation.
Ros comments, “Architects have a really unique opportunity because to tell the Aboriginal narrative in public architecture is a really direct way for the community to experience a story that’s been invisible before in public places. That means you don’t have to buy a ticket to a theatre production, you don’t have to buy a book, you don’t have to enter a gallery. So if you can relate the Aboriginal narrative through public architecture, you’re accessing people in the normal way they go about experiencing cities and towns and the built environment. That’s why I think architecture is a really good medium to tell the story.”
