Opportunity for Futures

Key to this engagement is exporing designing with Country. These are significant considerations as we seek to move from western perspective of country as resource to acknowledging and practicing First Nations-led care for Country in our approach to design, whether that be of systems, services, places, things or otherwise.


The approach Tristan took to this work was to steward, prompt, provoke and mentor students through notions of designing with Country and Indigenous Knowledge systems in the context of its relationship, or not, with western modernity, in understanding place, space and the built environment.
