Venice Architecture Biennale
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 2016, The Pool by Aileen Sage and Michelle Tabet. Selected for its incisive interest in the connections between landscape, culture and architecture, The Pool is set to transport visitor’s poolside. An immersive multi-sensory experience, within the new DCM pavilion, the exhibition will profile a series of Australia’s most remarkable pools.
With the opening of the new Australian pavilion in the Giardini in 2015, the spotlight will be firmly on Australia and its architecture for the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale.

2015 Australasian Student Congress- People
2 - 4 July 2015, Melbourne
The theme of the congress is based around the idea that “Architecture is not about form but formations of people”
. Architecture is more than form, materiality and details; it is in architecture that we work and rest, it's where we fall in love, where we protest; architecture changes behaviour, it unites and divides, provides shelter and inspiration. It is these thoughts that underpin People- the 2015 Australasian Student Architecture Congress.
Speakers included Takaharu Tezuka [Japan], Riccardo Vanucci [Italy], Julie Stout [New Zealand] Steve Larkin [Ireland], Laurent Gutierrez [HongKong], Anna Rubbo [USA], Veronika Valk [Estonia] and Sandra Manninger [USA] as well as a line up of domestic speakers including Sean Godsell, Tone Wheeler, Phil Harris / Adrian Welke, Jeremy McLeod, Eugenia Lim, John Gollings, Paul Pholeros, Paul Memmott, Lucy Humphrey and Des Rogers
