Unit 5
The Central National Area

A National Attraction

Setting the scene

Canberra is a planned city and a creation of a new nation. It is also the home of the nation's most important cultural buildings, locations, celebrations and ceremonies -
a place where shared values are celebrated and particular objects that Australians treasure are stored. They remind us of our shared history and who we are today. Visitors to the National Capital can experience the past and present homes of the Federal Parliament, along with the Australian War Memorial, the National Capital Exhibition and Questacon, just to name a few.

Be creative

Create your own building design to be located in the National Capital.

Draw several architecturally based designs from several different angles.
