Debunking the inaccurate popular notions of early Aboriginal architecture and settlement, this lavish volume explores the range and complexity of Aboriginal-designed structures, spaces, and territories, from minimalist shelters to permanent houses and villages. As a framework for ongoing debate and research on Aboriginal lifestyles and cultural heritage, the book additionally features a brief overview of post-1970 collaborative architecture between white Australian architects and Aboriginal clients, as well as an introduction to the work of the first Aboriginal graduates of university-based courses in architecture.
