Jane Caught is one of the founding members of Sibling Architecture and is currently involved in a range of community-based projects in both inner-city Melbourne and regional Australia.

Sibling is a collaborative practice that works across a range of scales and sectors—but always with an emphasis on the civic. The practice has a research focus that considers how changing technologies and societal shifts affect the types of spaces and institutions we inhabit; the way people interact with them, and how they can be more inclusive.

The social, for Sibling, is a sphere where different types of people and things come together and see themselves as part of something larger together—a project, a community—even if they are different ages, abilities, genders, classes, races, or however one identifies. Sibling recently undertook the live research project New Agency—Owning Your Future at the RMIT Design Hub, around the future of housing and aged care in Australia.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
