Canberra Biennial virtual tour

By Kerces 18 November 2005 4

The first ever Canberra Biennial is on right now with an exhibition at Reconciliation Place of temporary shelters (the theme for this biennial). There have also been various conferences and talks (have a look here for more on this). The exhibition closes this Sunday 20-NOV-05 but if you don’t have time to wander over there, I took some pictures the other weekend.

And so I now present “Canberra Biennial: the virtual tour”.

The first structure was fairly permanent looking (actually, a fair few of them were) wood and corrugated iron single room. I think it may have been on a trailer, but I didn’t investigate thoroughly.

Wood and corrugated iron structure

There was a pretty neat chair inside this place (I have learned an appreciation for chairs over the past few years).

Cool chair

And outside the building were some of those cool plastic rock-seats that you can fit together however you want (complete with familiar shirt…). I’m reasonably sure these were designed by a graduate of the University of Canberra’s industrial design course.

Some great housing options Dr Foskey and the ACT govt may like to pursue and encourage the homeless to take up…given they can’t solve the problems in providing more homes for the needy!

Most of these ideas are very good (some are plain very silly!), and would no doubt have use for civil emergency stuations where people’s homes have been damaged or destroyed and they need temporary accommodation.
