CITY VISIONS 1910 | 2010
The „CITY VISIONS 1910/2010 Berlin Paris London Chicago“ exhibition, previously displayed at the Architecture Forum in Berlin University of Technology (TU), was brought to London by the German Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development, the Museum of Architecture Berlin University of Technology and Design for London. In London it was displayed in Dalston, as a temporary use of unlet retail units.
The exhibition is a celebration of the centenary of the „General Town Planning Exhibition in Berlin“ which promoted urban planning and design, displaying visionary projects from the four cities. It takes a fresh look at the ideas and projects from 100 years ago and sets them alongside new work that is shaping these major urban centres today.
The exhibition has been subsequently relocated to the Lighthouse in Glasgow through Architecture and Design Scotland (A+DS), the Scottish Government, Glasgow City Council, Future Glasgow, Berlin University of Technology and Design for London.
