About the Exhibit
The exhibition revolves around Yona Friedman’s famous Architecture Mobile (Mobile Architecture) theory, which was developed in 1950. Starting in 1958 with his “Manifesto de l’Architecture”, the Hungarian-born French architect formulated and championed the idea that the inhabitant should be the sole conceptor of his own living premises within a spaceframe structure that would allow individual variations. By use of sketches, models and animations, the exhibition shows how this theory was developed.
At the same time, by use of large prototypes, it explores the theme of improvisation, theorised by Friedman ever since the 70s as a “possibility” in the world of architecture.
