Abstract Design in the Australian Alps provides a unique challenge for professionals, possibly more so than in urban environments such as Melbourne or Sydney. Professionals must accommodate an uncompromising environment and one of the oldest and rarest landscapes on earth while providing solutions for a highly contemporary and questioning society. This paper offers an understanding of considerations for the realisation of projects in the Australian Alps through an explanation of this landscape, climate change and pertinent design issues.
