The buildingstories project is the first in a series of interactive digital works that capture Melbourne’s rapidly disappearing vernacular architecture and interiors. The project engages with digital storytelling techniques and new technologies to create an archive that records the physical architectural spaces and the associated human and non-human lives and stories that were created and supported by the specific space.

The work values documenting disappearing vernacular urban interiors to reveal how our cultures, memories, stories, and desires are world-building. The digital environment encourages deeper critical awareness of human and non-human entanglements within its audience to foster new ways of feeling and thinking about histories, cultures and being in a more-than-human world.
