Generations have sought to appropriate places or things through marking; scratching into or applied onto surfaces. For Bob Hawke College, the surface of the brickwork is marked with words mnemonic of the past experiences of communities and speculations of the future student experience. Kolbang: to go forward Risk Change Special thanks to Composite Components for CNC machining the bricks, Pact Construction for brick laying and Bateman Architects for their support. Thanks to the Whadjuk Working Party and City of Subiaco for their contribution.
