dc.description.abstract The Biennale is the most important event on the international contemporary architecture calendar. Thousands of the world's most influential architects, designers, urban planners, developers and critics visit the Biennale, with considerable discussion and commentary in the architectural press and general media generated as a direct result. The 11th International Architecture Exhibition, directed by Aaron Betsky, took place in Venice from 14 September to 23 November 2008. It included a record number 65 national pavilions. The Australian Pavilion attracted more than 129,000 visitors, including more than 300 leading Australian architects. Australia's participation was an initiative of the Australian Institute of Architects. The AIA invited more than 180 Australian practices to create interpretative models based on an existing project and responding to the director's theme: `Out there: architecture beyond building'. This resulted in the exhibition `Abundant, showcasing 300 `architectural artefacts' and a kaleidoscope of immersive projections of `extraordinary, eccentric and eclectic buildings' showcasing Australia's abundant architectural diversity. My project, Patternity, describes a process investigating the topological properties of epithelia. In living organisms, these membranes constitute reactive borders between two environments and have specific functions: movement, exchange, selective permeability, mechanical and chemical protection. By considering the ability of these membranes to generate types of multifunctional and relational patterns, the objective is to evaluate what could then be transposed into the field of architecture and sculpture. Based on the ambivalent functions, organisational modes, regeneration processes, spatial deformations and continuous transformations of a particular epithelium, Patternity_ds42 has been generated as a three dimensional small scale sculpture, through an adaptive replication of its components.
