Open Archive

The Open Archive is the operative component of the exhibition: a compilation of ‘tactics’ – condensed nuggets of architectural intelligence responding to the challenge of decolonisation in architecture – gleaned from the profession across Australia. This forms an inventory or ‘open archive’ of design moves, setups, techniques, propositions, and exemplars drawn from current architectural discourse and practice, contributing to La Biennale’s Laboratory of the Future. Visitors can detach and gather the tactics that interest them, thereby compiling their own personal catalogue.

The Curators have distilled the tactics into five key themes which concisely convey the contribution to La Biennale’s Laboratory of the Future.  Filter by ‘Curators’ Comments’ to read more.
