This internationally touring exhibition creates dynamic encounters between Europe, Asia and the Pacific through architecture, a diverse art form.
The selected works represent the architects and city planners who are generating a new art of global living, but instead of defining a universal approach we see a network of endless diversity. The exhibition includes 20 architects from Europe and the Asia-Pacific and will be shown in Australia, China, France, Ireland, Japan and Korea.
