Repair is the official catalogue of the 2018 Australian Institute of Architects Venice Biennale installation. Repair examines how architecture can engage with the environmental, social and cultural repair of the places it is a part of, and documents architectural and artistic projects that do this.
Repair is particularly relevant to Australian architects, who work in one of the most diverse and ecologically sensitive landscapes in the world. Our cities mingle with remnant vegetation, connected to large natural systems as well as built over the traditional cultural landscapes of our indigenous peoples.
