AUGMENTED AUSTRALIA 1914-2014, p[resented by the Sydney Architecture Festival 2014, curated by felix._Giles_Anderson+Goad, pushes the boundaries of architecture and technology, taking visitors on a virtual journey through a selection of Australia’s most intriguing unrealised projects.
The exhibition showcases 11 historical and 11 contemporary Australian projects from the past one hundred years, which for various reasons, were never built. The projects are brought to life via three-dimensional (3D) augmented models, images, voiceovers and animations, activated by a specially designed Augmented Australia App that is free to download on common handheld devices. Trigger images, situated throughout this atrium space, can be used with the App to form a physical portal to Augmented Australia, while real-world scale 3D models are geographically positioned around Sydney and Parramatta. This groundbreaking exhibition tells the story of Australia’s architectural heritage as never before through reimagining and hi-tech innovation.
