About the Building

The Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre’s building is a free-form structure, built-in 1995 from locally made mud bricks. The structure was a joint design with the Anangu people, the park staff, and local architects. It is an award-winning design, with the building representing two ancestral snakes who once battled at Mutitjulu Waterhole and led to the creation of Uluru. Many of the local artists also helped design the paintings, murals, and glass displayed throughout the cultural centre. The building is apart of the natural landscape of the area, representing the importance of knowledge, culture, and nature for the Anangu people.
