ABSTRACT | INTRODUCTION
This paper introduces a collaborative design approach, one that is facilitatory and beneficial towards Australian Indigenous cultural landscapes. The design approach endeavours to nurture capacity building within ‘Traditional Custodians’ in order to contribute to the sustainability of remote area communities together with caring for ‘Country’.
The document also acknowledges the theory of ‘alternative development’ as a philosophical framework that deviates from pure western development that is economic centric, to a framework better suited to nurturing and managing cultural landscapes, especially within regional development scenarios; ‘Alternative Development intends to expand regional peoples, including Aboriginal peoples control over the things that matter, to increase their economic, political and social freedom as they understand those things through the lens of their own cultural values.’ Alternative Development methods aim to equally recognise social and cultural values within the paradigm of economic development and that it; ‘is not necessarily synonymous with economic growth, it has cultural and social dimensions as well’. [1]
Maryam and Greg of UDLA are part of an urban design and landscape architecture practice situated in Fremantle, Western Australia. In the past twelve years the practice’s focus has been on remote community development, in areas often experiencing high Aboriginal populations, stressed housing markets and a limited capacity to improve local conditions. For the purpose of the North West paper, the often generically used word ‘community’ reflects the above description.
UDLA’s design philosophy hinges on the understanding that the health of a community has a symbiotic relationship with how empowered participants are engaged their environment and have a say in changing their existing condition into a preferred one. The practice utilises a design process that endeavours to integrate the principals of human scale development found in the Community Development literature (Neef, 1991 [2]; Laverack, 2005 [3]) and the benefits of social empowerment through approaches such as The Environmental Justice Movement (Schlosberg, 2007 [4]; Bryant, 1995 [5]; McDonald, 2002 [6]; Rhodes, 2003 [7]). Each of these theoretical foundations addresses components that are critical to the success of community, including cultural engagement practices.
UDLA’s approach reflects growing acknowledgement among scholars that the term ‘environment’ has expanded to include not only traditional ecological elements, but also those of a social nature, ultimately incorporating; the natural environment (Johnson et al, 1997 [8]), built environment (Brugmann, 2009 [9]), and social environment (Case, 2003 [10]). The result of this shift in philosophy is that the “environment” is now considered to be a place where people live, work and play. Coupled with this is the recognition that to achieve extensive sustainability objectives, there must be equitable spatial distributions of burdens across Indigenous and ethnic minorities; sustainability cannot be achieved if such burdens are placed only on the disadvantaged in society (Schlosberg, 2007 [4]).
Operating mostly at the ‘meso-level’, Maryam and Greg will share the theoretical frameworks which underpin their teams approach and will endeavour to illustrate individualised steps for a number of their community and cultural landscape development case studies, and in turn highlighting the role of Landscape Architects within this multidisciplinary process. Therefore there is an understanding that community and culturally sensitive design requires an integrated design methodology, highlighting the realisation that robust solutions are often found between disciplines and LA’s are well placed to recognise and coordinate these findings.
