The indigenous grassland of southeast Victoria is recreated inside Australia’s Venice Architecture Biennale pavilion.
More then 10,000 plants, including 65 different grassland species, form the installation Grasslands Repair, as part of an exhibition calling for a reassessment of the value of Victoria’s natural landscape.
According to curators Mauro Baracco and Louise Wright, of Baracco+Wright Architects, only one per cent of the grasslands that existed at the time of European settlement, in 1788, now remains.
