GOOD NATURED: design art architecture

Celebrating creative projects by designers, artists and architects working to design a better future — these practitioners are focussed on creating outcomes that are both beautiful and good for the planet.

Featuring nine creative projects by:
Breathe Architecture | Dale Hardiman | Glider | Honey Fingers | Joanna Fowles | John Gertsakis | Kirsha Kaechele and Material Institute | Peta Kruger | Yerrabingin

Plus a growing list of examples of good natured people and organisations who demonstrate the depth and diversity of beautiful, practical and impactful work being done for a better world.

Good Natured invites all of us to be active participants, inspired and engaged to become part of the solution to design a healthy, safe and beautiful environment. We can all take small steps to a sustainable future. We hope that everyone who sees this exhibition is inspired to create their own good natured project.

Developed by guest curator Liane Rossler and ADC's Lisa Cahill, exhibition and graphic design by Maria Mosquera and Vania Contreras with creative direction by Liane Rossler, wallpaper design by Kate Swinson, creative production by ADC's Rhadi Bryant and fabrication by Signwave Newtown, with initial design concepts from Vanessa Low.

This project has been developed by a collective of creative people united in their view that all projects should first and foremost consider the environmental impact. These good natured people worked with the whole ADC team to make this exhibition with the lowest possible carbon footprint.
