Description

Repair aims to expand the point of view from the object of architecture, to the way it operates in its context, advocating a role for architecture that catalyses or actively engages with the environmental, social and cultural repair of the places it is a part of. Repair is a critical strategy of architectural culture. It is particularly relevant to Australian architects who work in one of the most diverse and ecologically sensitive landscapes in the world. Our cities are interspersed and bordered by remnant vegetation, connected to large natural systems as well as built over the traditional cultural landscapes of our First Nations peoples. They are also the scenes of developing ecosystems at which humans are the centre of. The aim to present architecture from a different point of view is behind the decision to collaborate with artist Linda Tegg, whose practice often presents us with a different way of looking. Together, Baracco+Wright Architects and Linda Tegg have collaborated to create and install a grassland in the pavilion, Grasslands Repair, the life sustaining light installation Skylight, and present architecture through video rather than singular images through the work Ground.
