Aboriginal design is of a distinctly cultural nature, based in the Dreaming and in ancient practices grounded in C ountry. It is visible in the aerodynamic boomerang, the ingenious design of fish traps and the precise layouts of community settlements that strengthen social cohesion.

Design: Building on Country issues a challenge for a new Australian design ethos, one that truly responds to the essence of C ountry and its people.
