Architecture - Honours


Ground zero functions as the central place for restructuring Australian society for the sustainability era, coordinating the functions and legislation of local, state and federal governments towards common goals of achieving environmental, social and economic sustainability.

A place that will become GROUND ZERO for global sustainability transformations in democracies and societies across the globe…

In our current democracy, environmental and social sustainability issues are treated separately to economic issues and policies when the economy in fact relies on the stability of the natural and human world.

A transition from a system reliant on perpetual economic growth to one recognisant of the finite size and resources of our planet must urgently commence.

The restructuring of Australia’s society and economy into the sustainability era is coordinated at the Hall of Democracy, which informs and guides decision makers at all levels of government.

The Hall also functions as a place for education, as the transition to a sustainable era takes place, thus harnessing the power of individuals to initiate positive changes.

A place focused on RESTRUCTURING democracy to foster sustainability.

A new focal point for global sustainability practices in the heart of Brisbane.
