Formatted Abstract/Summary
...Moulis re-imagined the architecture of three significant city monuments and buildings, each sited within the Parliamentary Triangle around the lake, but constructed his own constellation of references for them. He brought in a new lexicon of personal associations drawn from family experiences and a rich heritage of stories of ancient Greek oracles, goddesses and priests, framing them within the remodelled structures...

This nationally exhibited design-based research includes a set of speculative projects that re-devise familiar monumental places of Canberra in unfamiliar ways. Reflecting upon the city's imported language of European architecture and ideas of civic presence evident in the city's planned form, the projects seek to re-invent Canberra’s landscape as a place occupied by the personal and the public, the imaginary and the real. The work was produced for an invited exhibition by 8 nationally-based artists and designers held at the Canberra Contemporary Art Space as part of the 2013 'Canberra 100' Centenary.
