Abstract or Description:

This chapter examines the role of architectural curation to critically and creatively examine the built environment. As curatorial studies is both formalized and expanded across disciplines, we suggest that the curation of specifically spatial, urban, and architectural themes is worth closer examination. This observation is amplified by the recent proliferation of architecture and design biennales, as well as the global re-emergence of the architectural pavilion. The case study used in this chapter is a project developed to represent Australia at the 2011 Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space, in which the conventions of curation were reshaped to create a performative, generative, and collective form of criticism.
