Boardwalk now a permanent blight on the landscape

p2348 Annie Myers Hill SM

 

The choice of materials, its heavy form and clutter of lines means it cannot sit lightly in the landscape, surely a bottom-line criterion for a structure like this. KIERAN FNNANE comments and seeks the views of design professionals.

Alice architects selected for Venice Biennale

 

An Alice Springs architectural practice has been included in the Australian display for the 2012 International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale in Italy. Tangentyere Design – Tangentyere Council’s architecture enterprise – was selected from among more than 100 architects on the basis of its unique ‘practice formation’.

The Biennale is one of the most important events on the International contemporary architecture calendar. Thousands of architects, designers, planners and critics visit the Biennale, in addition to the thousands of tourists.  Over 93,000 people visited the Australian pavilion at the 2010 Architecture Biennale.

 

Pictured: One of Tangentyere Design's buildings, the Centre for Appropriate Technology, located in the Desert Knowledge precinct in Alice. The exhibition in which Tangentyere Design features is focussed more on the nature of the practice – the kind of work that's done, the locations, the clients – than on the buildings.
