Exhibition: December 12, 2012 – March 3, 2013
The magical number 7 has been integrated into the exhibition concept in a variety of ways.
The show begins with a backward glance at the founding year of 1968 and the theoretical roots of this architectural partnership. The exhibition then proceeds with a detailed presentation of 7 buildings chosen by Wolf D. Prix, each from a different decade, and each with special significance for his oeuvre as a whole, before concluding with a foretaste of future projects.
