QuAMPI and the Whale
Bligh Tanner is privileged to partner with COX Architects and Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC) to deliver key projects for North Stradbroke Island’s economic transition from sand mining.
Yalingbila Bibula (Whale on the Hill) will see a whale skeleton suspended from an open canopy roof at the start of the popular Point Lookout Gorge walk – the interpretative facility has extraordinary views over the ocean that is home to the passing Humpback whales. QuAMPI (Quandamooka Art Museum Performance Institute) at Dunwich is a long envisaged cultural home for Minjerrabah’s traditional owners that will house and showcase artifacts, art and performance.
Currently under design , both projects are demanding integration across a range of specialist disciplines from whale skeleton articulation to rammed earth for walls using local sand materials. We look forward to sharing experiences and knowledge in these areas as the projects unfold.
