Venice Architecture Biennale 

26 May - 25 Nov 2018

The Venice Biennale is the premier architectural forum in the world. Australia’s representation in Venice presents an opportunity to showcase the highest levels of thought, research and design in Australian architectural culture. Our participation in the Biennale sets the example for Australian design achievement.

We are pleased to announce the Australian Exhibition for 2018, repair by Baracco+Wright Architects, in collaboration with artist Linda Tegg. repair will present thousands of temperate grassland species, cultivated and nurtured within the Australian Pavilion alongside large-scale architectural projections, representing a physical dialogue between architecture and endangered plant community reminding us what is at stake when we occupy land.
