2012 Venice Architecture Biennale sponsors

Metaxas Architects is proud sponsors of the up and coming Australian Institute of Architects exhibition, at the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale. The Venice Architecture Biennale is held every two years, and Metaxas Architects has supported Australian architecture at the last three Biennales in 2008, 2010, and 2012.

In 2012, the creative team for the Australian Pavilion at the 13th Venice International Architecture Biennale are architects Anthony Burke and Gerard Reinmuth, working in close collaboration with TOKO Concept Design.

The concept for the exhibition is ‘Formations; New Practices in Australian Architecture’. The exhibition is looking to highlight the remarkable versatility and innovation of non-standard practice types and their design out puts that are expanding the role of the architect.

Six architectural teams working in non-traditional ways and domains have been selected from around the nation, bringing skills and expertise from areas as diverse as robotic fabrication, government policy and indigenous housing. The featured teams are:

  • — Healthabitat (Paul Pholeros, Stephan Rainow, Paul Torzillo)
  • — Supermanoeuvre (Dave Pigram, Iain Maxwell, Chris Duffield)
  • — Richard Goodwin Pty Ltd (Richard Goodwin)
  • — 2112 Ai (100YR City) (Tom Kovac, Fleur Watson)
  • — The Architects Radio Show (Stuart Harrison, Simon Knott, Christine Philips, Rory Hyde)
  • — Archrival (Claire McCaughan, Lucy Humphrey)
