University of Newcastle Architecture Students Collaborate With Tangentyere For Better Home Designs

26th Jul 2018

What are the best ways to ensure Aboriginal people live in well designed houses, not only in Town Camps but in remote communities? We’ll be hearing from a few architecture students who have traveled to the centre from the Uni of Newcastle. They’ve been working here in Mbantwe Alice Springs about culturally appropriate architecture.

Philippe Perez spoke with University of Newcastle architecture students Emma Gaal & Angus Wirth about the collaboration and the aims of designing rooms, houses & town camps for the local Aboriginal population.

The exhibition showing designs from the students will be on display Friday 27th July from 2pm at 20 Todd St in Mbantwe Alice Springs. For more information head to the Making Room To Breathe website.
