dc.description.abstractRESEARCH QUESTION: How can one culture’s architecture be built in another culture’s landscape, when both groups’ identities are tied to their ancestral lands? ABSTRACT: This research explores New Zealand Māori and Australian Aboriginal peoples’ connection to their ancestral land, and how their relationship to the land has changed, and continues to change, over time. The overall master planning and design of a Marae Cultural Centre, sited on significant Aboriginal Darug land in Western Sydney, is developed through the use of Glenn Murcutt’s philosophy of designing to respond to the site and to ‘touch the earth lightly.’ There is a particular focus on the marae atea as a forum for bi-cultural expression and interaction. An analysis of traditional building techniques, and how they can be adapted using modern systems and materials is also explored. This gives a construction detail focused architectural outcome which complements the overall master planning and environmental design drivers of the project.en_NZ
