Aboriginal design is of a distinctly cultural nature, based in the Dreaming and in ancient practices grounded in Country. 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 shows how these design principles of sophisticated function, sustainability and storytelling, refined over many millennia, are now being applied to contemporary practices. The publication also issues a challenge for a new Australian design ethos, one that truly responds to the essence of Country and its people.
