Published by Phaidon, Exhibit A: Exhibitions That Transformed Architecture 1948–2000 brings together the most significant architectural exhibitions of the 20th century from around the world. The selection paints an accurate picture of the development of modern architecture during the second half of the 20th century. The book was written by Eeva-Liisa Pelkonen, an associate professor at Yale School of Architecture.
How do you exhibit a building, a locality, a city? Exhibit A reveals how architecture has pushed the boundaries of exhibition as a medium and how, in turn, exhibitions have shaped the discipline of architecture. Focusing on 80 landmark architecture exhibitions mounted in countries around the world between 1948 and 2000, and featuring 300 images, this groundbreaking overview is both a vital reference and a visually compelling study of the way we look at built work.
