Our Reconciliation Journey

As designers of the built environment, we all hold a unique position to incorporate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples cultures into what we do, to reflect the deep history of the land our designs sit upon.

Buchan’s Reflect Reconciliation Plan marks a key milestone in our reconciliation journey, and our commitment to playing an active role in creating an inclusive and diverse profession.

This includes partnering with The University of Queensland to establish the Buchan Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Architecture Industry Scholarship program which both supports a student though their degree and offers an employment pathway. This is the first scholarship of its kind for the University with the inaugural placement to commence in 2023.

Deepening our connection through education, Buchan engaged local First Nations artist Theresa Bower of Burrundi Design Studio to create an original artwork that reflects our practice’s reconciliation journey from the present and into the future, focused on the pillars of education, inclusivity, connection, and the reconciliation pathway forward.
