Abundant Australia – Highlights from the 11th Venice Architecture

Biennale

10am Thursday 1 July until 4pm Saturday 24 July

Following the phenomenal success at the 11th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice 2008, models from the Abundant Australia Exhibition will be showing at the Gallery of Australian Design (GAD) in partnership with the Australian Institute of Architects.

The Abundant exhibition in Venice showcased over 300 interpretive models from abstract forms to architectural fragments, responding to the Venice Biennale Director Aaron Betsky’s theme: ‘Out there: architecture beyond the building’. It is a reinstallation reminiscent of the original ‘garden of architectural artefacts’, curated by Creative Directors Neil Durbach, Vince Frost, Wendy Lewin, Kerstin Thompson & Gary Warner.
The ‘Abundant Highlights’ exhibition will see over 100 of these models, from emerging and established practices around Australia. This exhibition uses models to demonstrate the breadth and depth of Australia’s architectural practice, highlighting Australia’s diverse architectural history and inspirational future.
 

 

This is the final showing of ‘Abundant Highlights’, as it returns to Australia after touring Bangkok, Singapore and Malaysia. Prior to this, it featured in Victoria’s State of Design Festival, and exhibited in Sydney’s Object Gallery.

Australian presentation selected and supported by Object: Australian Centre for Craft and Design. Abundant Highlights is a major project of the Australian Institute of Architects.
