Rueben Berg has been interviewed as part of an article in The Age regarding the ‘Indigenous Place’ project:
Melbourne architectural graduate Rueben Berg, co-founder and Director of Indigenous Architecture Victoria, an organisation that aims to strengthen Indigenous design and culture, and an author on the study, said Aboriginality was an untapped area for architects to be inspired for any new project in the built environment.
“This book shows us that there is so much out there in terms of how Aboriginality is represented culturally, which can then be used as a framework for any new project, whether it is by the Indigenous community or by any architects.
“Aboriginality is more than people typically perceive it to be, such as associations with Alice Springs, the desert and Kakadu. There is so much more going on that can inspire exciting new designs,” he says.
