CONGRATULATIONS TO BARACCO+WRIGHT ARCHITECTS and LINDA TEGG for being announced as CREATIVE DIRECTORS for the AUSTRALIAN EXHIBITION at the 16TH INTERNATIONAL ARCHITECTURE EXHIBITION IN VENICE, running from 26 May to 25 Nov 2018.
Baracco+Wright is the practice of RMIT Architecture & Urban Design Associate Professor Mauro Baracco and RMIT Architecture Alumna Louise Wright.
Baracco+Wright Architects, in collaboration with artist Linda Tegg, will present repair: a physical dialogue between architecture and an endangered plant community, reminding us what is at stake when we occupy land. The exhibition will comprise thousands of temperate grassland species, which will be cultivated and nurtured in the pavilion alongside large-scale architectural projections. The exhibition will create a physical dialogue between architecture and endangered plant communities.
Jill Garner, chair of the Institute’s Venice Biennale committee described Baracco and Wright and Linda Tegg’s proposal as an “immersive, multi-sensory exhibition that will engage visitors with the concept of repair, an approach to architectural thinking, set to become a critical strategy of architectural culture.”
Baracco and Wright and Linda Tegg will be collaborating with architect Paul Memmott, landscape architects Chris Sawyer and Tim O’Loan and curatorial advisor Catherine Murphy.
