Making Architecture Public

This week's eMagazine at World-Architects features "Making Architecture Public," which includes short Q&As with over ten architectural institutions around the world, to get a sense of the present and future of creating exhibitions and making architecture public. More information is at bottom.

The institutions are: Architekturforum Aedes (Germany), Architekturforum Zürich (Switzerland), Architekturgalerie München (Germany), Architekturzentrum Wien (Austria), Canadian Centre for Architecture (Canada), Chicago Architecture Foundation (USA), Danish Architecture Centre (Denmark), LIGA - Space for Architecture (Mexico), MAK Center for Art and Architecture (USA), NOTE (Portugal), and Pinkcomma (USA).

Architecture exhibitions are valuable means of bringing buildings, the processes of designing and making them, and other aspects of architecture to the public. With a myriad of institutions, venues, and ways of exhibiting, it's hard to determine the best way to make something as complex as architecture understandable to a wider public. With the Association of Architecture Organizations 2013 conference taking place in Boston (26-28 September) and the Yale School of Architecture symposium Exhibiting Architecture: A Paradox following in New Haven (3-5 October), it seems like an apt time to look at how institutions exhibit architecture and what directions they are heading. This short survey asks some international institutions a handful of questions to get a sense of the present and future of creating exhibitions and making architecture public.
