The title of the Interior Architecture Studio 8 project – ‘Terra Marvellous’ – reflects the beauty of Aboriginal Art.

Terra Marvellous – A Cultural Centre on Aboriginal Art Creation

The creation of Aboriginal Art is a self-defining expression of the culture and history of Australia’s Indigenous people. Terra Marvellous is a cultural centre on Aboriginal Art creation located at Billilla, a colonial mansion located in Brighton on the traditional land of the Boonwurrung. The proposed program invites Aboriginal Artists to demonstrate the distinctive processes in the creation of Aboriginal Art and aims to educate school students from the Brighton locale about the identity of the Boonwurrung and ‘country’ – inland Australia. The emphasis on the beauty of Art creation through the spatial control of Aborigines potentially makes the project post-colonial.
