Learning Intentions & Success Criteria

- Students recognise that all built environments require solid foundations. Ngunnawal lands were nurtured and maintained for thousands of years maintaining lands, waters and ecosystems prior to European settlement.

- Students discover that there were established competition criteria and designers were judged on their creative solutions to these criteria.
- Students consider new thinking that the National Capital has symbolic, cultural and aesthetic values and maintains actual heritage significance.
- Students recognise that Canberra is a monumental city that houses the Federal Government. Canberra’s design features are nationally and internationally significant.
- Students build on prior knowledge that Canberra is the location of the Federal Government and that this is where the rules and decisions are made for the whole of Australia.
- Students discover what made the winning Griffin design concept successful and gain knowledge that it holds significant heritage value and this must be maintained.
- Students learn that Canberra is an iconic bush capital and that the Griffin design is a direct response to the topography of the natural landscape.
