Mount Tom Price was an invitational exhibition submission at the 2008 Venice Architecture Biennale. We commenced with an exploration of the immense scale of the iron ore mine during three periods 1969 Mt Tom Price pre-mining, 2008 Current condition at the time and 2028 rehabilitated landscape post mining. Such mines have been the backbone of the booming West Australian economy. We then speculated about an alternative future with an open cut museum, a 300m wide vertical slice of the mine, retained as a celebration of a significant moment in the history of the place and a memorial to the land that has been removed and sold.
