Architects contest colonial inheritance in global forum

In the next edition of Architettura Biennale in Venice, Australian creatives are looking to shake up colonial histories.

It is the 18th edition of the globally celebrated event, and the ninth time that the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) has coordinated Australia’s representation in the Denton Corker Marshall-designed Australian Pavilion.
