The Australian Pavilion takes the theme ‘Repair’ to examine the separation between buildings and cities and the natural environment in Australia and present the consequences of what disregard to nature brings our environment. The exhibition notes a shift of thinking amongst built environment disciplines towards repairing the natural environment as a framework for urban form; as a reverse to urban sprawl. Presented by the Royal Australian Institute of Architects, Repair is seen as an approach to architectural thinking particularly relevant to Australian architects who work in one of the most diverse and ecologically sensitive landscapes in the world.
