All living creatures on earth have an innate connection to water, in fact, we cannot survive without water. This deep affiliation to water heightens our sensory experiences and attachment to place, where beautiful landscapes along waterways gets settled by humans since ancient times. In the exhibition ‘Aquaphilia’, five contributors from a multidisciplinary background of architecture, landscape architecture, sculpture and fine arts – submerge themselves into the depths of their practice to produce works reflective of a ‘Love of Water’. The collection of contemporary visual and interactive artworks underpinned by the adoration for hydration, raises questions of social and environmental consciousness.

Rewilding the City, 2021
Online exhibition Now Available!
What might a biophilic city look like and how could its residents benefit from a city that embraces nature through a spectrum of green infrastructure solutions?
Explore in this exhibition alternate possibilities of Geelong as a Nature-full City through design ideas from students, researchers and academics that propose an integrated ecosystem across rooftops, city plazas and future growth areas.
The role of abundant wild nature in a truly sustainable city is often undervalued. Evidence shows that the integration of natural systems in urban and suburban areas helps cities cope with climate change impacts, as well as enhancing the health and wellbeing of urban populations. It is our vision that the City of Greater Geelong embraces biophilic design and could become a ‘rewilded and nature-full city’.
