The Pool: Architecture, Culture and Identity in Australia

2016 Venice Architecture Biennale

The Left Bank Co. team has just returned from delivering Australia’s exhibition, The Pool, at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale. With Michelle as one of the Creative Directors alongside Aileen Sage Architects, we were heavily involved in the creation and delivery of the exhibition, as well as the opening week events. The Pool is an exploration of the cultural significant of pools in all their forms, and was made up of an immersive exhibition built in Australia's pavilion in Venice, and a companion publication, developed and produced by the Left Bank Co. team. The project has been immensely well received by the industry, the public and the media.
 
You can read more about the project on our project pages here and here. There is also an album of images on our Facebook page here, and you can pick up a copy of our companion publication on sale online via Manic Books.
