"Augmented Australia will be a new and technologically cutting edge picture of unbuilt visions and dreams for Australian architecture. Responding directly to Rem Koolhaas’s theme of one hundred years of modernity, digital reconstructions of 11 historic unbuilt public projects show the tensions faced by Australian architects in dealing with national identity, modernization and a constant desire to be international. Complementing these historic engagements with modernism, 11 contemporary unbuilt projects show an Australian architecture that is confidently global in outlook, critical in its stance on issues like environment, and visionary in its bold formal propositions for the future Australian city."
