Ministry of Native Land Tiles


A proposal to de-colonise Australian government buildings

The Ministry of Native Land Titles is a proposal for a new government building in Canberra, designed to host the country’s native-claims courts. Envisioned as part of a broader scheme to de-colonise government buildings in Australia, the ministry consists of three courtrooms, a ceremonial space and accommodation for visiting elders, as well as administrative offices. The cladding of the building is made from a mixed body clay, produced by mixing soil from all of the indigenous clans of Australia, creating a distinctly indigenous aesthetic without the overt use of indigenous iconography.
