Designing in Dialogue The Architecture of von Gerkan, Marg and Partners
Before the “Designing in Dialogue” travelling exhibition arrived in Nanjing, it had already been shown at the Chinese National Museum in Beijing, in Vietnam, Brazil and Chile. With this exhibition gmp architects provide an overview of their oeuvre: sketches and drawings convey the conceptual approach, models illustrate the designs in their three-dimensional form and photos and films document the completed buildings.
The exhibited projects are grouped under six main themes: multiplicity and unity, mobility, urbanity, society and responsibility, innovation and identity, tradition.
These themes cover important, fundamental, practical and theoretical aspects of gmp’s work. The grouping serves for greater clarity and reflects the complex design approach required for architectural projects.
