Place and Displacement: Exhibiting Architecture

EINLADUNG.inddPlace and Displacement: Exhibiting Architecture (Lars Müller Publishers, Zurich 2014) investigates historical and contemporary practices of displaying architecture, whether at full scale or as fragments, models, or two-dimensional representations. Exploring questions of circulation and temporality, issues of institution and canon, and the discourse and politics of architectural spaces on exhibit, this volume addresses the ambiguous status of architecture as an object of display, and reveals the centrality of the exhibition in defining and redefining the notion of architecture and its history.
