Dr. Toni Roberts



Toni specialises in the strategic planning and design of interpretive exhibitions and environments for museums and other public contexts. Her research and practice contribute to the theoretical and practical foundations for the emerging profession of interpretation design. Communicating place and human connection with the environment are central themes in Toni's work. Current projects include Merri Creek signage and Care for the Rare with RBGV. She has led or collaborated on projects of significant scale and impact, including: The National Capital Exhibition in Canberra, Taronga Zoo Tigers supermarket kiosk, Whittlesea Bushfire Memorial, Royal Australian Mint Factory Viewing Gallery, Werribee Open Range Zoo Arrivals Precinct, and Auckland Zoo's Te Wao Nui / New Zealand from Sea to Sky precinct. Toni has a particular interest in the contribution that environmental humanities and post-humanist theory can make to sustainable futures, and engages in experimental research exploring this territory. Toni brings to her work a conviction that sustainability must be a central concern of design education and practice.
