Project Center

Melbourne, Australia


The Banksia Gardens Community Centre, located in Broadmeadows, Victoria, Australia, aims to educate and motivate their community about sustainable construction and affordable practises through the Building Demonstration Program. The main focus of the Building Demonstration Program was to create engaging materials and interactive displays to educate visitors of the community centre about the sustainable features of the building. From the information our team gathered through research, building tours, observations and interviews, we tailored the Building Demonstration Program to everyone in the community. We hope that our displays will instil a sustainable mindset and empower the community to adopt sustainable measures.
