It provides a historical perspective on housing design in Australia, including ethnoarchitecture and challenges participants about the principles of sustainable housing design, their daily behaviour patterns and how to better connect with our natural environment.
The workshop is perfect for new home buyers, home owners considering renovations, STEM teachers, architects, engineers, town planners, sustainability and environmental designers and students.
