Venice | Yarrabah

Student models designed for the Venice Biennale 2016

Staged at the Tin Sheds Gallery, 'Venice | Yarrabah' showcases the depth and breadth of our students’ postgraduate experience.

From novel architectural investigations that engage with philosophy, globalisation and ethics to collaboration with Indigenous communities in North Queensland, this exhibition demonstrates the critical thinking and creative expression of our students. Physical and digital media including 3D models, printed booklets, video, animations and drawings will all be on display.

Thirteen Master of Architecture students will exhibit speculative architectural models which were conceived for the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale. 

Ana Subotic, Tye McBride and Tiffany Liew, Master of Architecture alumni, were collectively awarded a Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarship to document and reflect on the execution of ‘The Pool’, Australia’s contribution to the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale. 

Students will present their sustainable design solutions for affordable housing formulated in consultation with community leaders in this tropical environment south of Cairns.
