Aboriginal-led design and construction
- In collaboration with traditional owners and homelands service providers, we are investigating the prospect of Aboriginal-led design and construction of housing using local materials and labour. See Homeland communities designing and building for themselves (PDF, 14mb) – architect Paul Haar’s presentation to AHNT directors in July 2023.
- Wilya Janta is a collaboration between Warumungu people and allies working to design and build houses fit for both culture and climate .
