Exhibition: "This was Tomorrow: Reinventing Architecture, 1953 – 1978" (Basel, 13 March – 8 May 2016)

This was Tomorrow: Reinventing Architecture, 1953 – 1978
The Swiss Architecture Museum, Basel, March 13 – May 8, 2016
An exhibition by the Drawing Matter collection about architectural imagination, and the power, processes and poetics of creation and invention.
Curated by Markus Lähteenmäki, Manuel Montenegro & Nicholas Olsberg in cooperation with Hubertus Adam, the exhibition presents a series of twelve episodes focused on the period from 1953 to 1978 in the reconsideration of architecture. They all explore the very different ways to activate the potentials of the built environment in reforming the relations of human beings to each other and to their environments — from Le Corbusier’s final explorations of a new harmony of form to Aldo Rossi’s first evocations of the force of history.
