The Good Thief

With a growing number of abandoned regional towns across greater Victoria, The Good Thief explores the inherent nature of bank buildings as an architecture that represents conceptual frameworks in its form.

The banks role in these areas (often said to be the life and death of the town) has been interpreted as being vital to the sustainability of regional Australia. This project looks to the viability of social banking as a new way of maintaining financial services and allowing for increased funding of community projects.
