Dr Danièle Hromek is a spatial designer, speculative designer and public artist, fusing design elements with installations, sculptural form and research. Her design practice works in the intersection of architecture, interiors, urban design, performance design and fine arts. As an Aboriginal designer her work is grounded in her cultural and experiential heritage. Her work often considers the urban Aboriginal condition, the Indigenous experience of Country and contemporary Indigenous identities. Gaining her experience globally, she has lived in London, Paris, Barcelona, Vancouver and Sydney.

Danièle also works as a researcher considering how to Indigenise the built environment by creating spaces to substantially affect Indigenous rights and culture within an institution. Danièle’s research contributes an understanding of the Indigenous experience and comprehension of space, and investigates how Aboriginal people occupy, use, narrate, sense, dream and contest their spaces. It rethinks the values that inform Aboriginal understandings of space through Indigenous spatial knowledge and cultural practice, in doing so considers the sustainability of Indigenous cultures from a spatial perspective.

Danièle is a Saltwater woman of the Budawang clan of the Yuin nation, with French and Czech heritage.
