Exhibition Diversity of architecture – Architecture of diversity at the Arts House of Uccle in Brussels – from 3 to 21 April 2017

Belgium, and especially Brussels, is a real hub for the spread of architectural ideas, and our architects are precursors and advisers as well as imitators and interpreters.

The aim here is to show to which extent the circulation of ideas and forms contributed to the richness and diversity of the architecture in Brussels, such as the Art Nouveau style, and also how Brussels and its architects had an influence beyond our borders.

The exhibition offers thus tools to understand the various influences that we can find in the architecture in Brussels and learn to read façades that we can find every day.

It is realized on the basis of documents preserved in the collections of the CIVA Foundation.

Exhibition The Glass of the Architects. Vienna 1900–1937 at MAK in Vienna – from 18 January to 17 April 2017

A cooperation between the MAK and LE STANZE DEL VETRO

After the success of last year’s exhibition The Glass of the Architects in the rooms of LE STANZE DEL VETRO in Venice, which presented over 300 glasses from the period between 1900 and 1937—largely from the MAK Collection—the entire show has now moved to Vienna, where it is on display for the first time.

As designers of glassware, the architects of Viennese Modernism greatly influenced the products’ form and technique, with glass becoming established in this period as the material of modernism, from the last decades of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy to the end of the First Republic.

This exhibition divides the development in Vienna from new glass to modern glass into seven chapters, covering topics such as glass in the Wiener Werkstätte, war glasses, bronzite glass, classical glasses after designs by Josef Hoffmann, and glasses from the glassmaking schools. The glassworks in the exhibition are supplemented by designs by architects of Viennese Modernism as well as by photographs, which document the exhibitions of the time and hence bear witness to the exceptional effect on the public of these radically modern objects.
