TRANSATLANTIC ARCHITECTURE- EUROPE AND THE AMERICAS
Pratt Institute, New York, 2012

The exhibition "Transatlantic Architecture - Europe and the Americas" features projects and architects who have contributed to the exchange between the three continents. Many European architects as Mies van der Rohe, Gropius, Breuer, Sert found their person and professional asylum in the USA during WW2. Others like Aalto and Le Corbusier were able to build important projects in the Americas. Latin American architects as Niemeyer, Costa, Candela built in Europe. Contemporary European architects as Calatrava, Piano, Rogers, Foster, Nouvel, Herzog and De Meuron and American architects as Libeskind, Holl, Mayne, Gehry, and Meyer designed some of their most iconic buildings on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. The exchanges of design ideas have fostered an incredibly rich architectural exchange, which transformed the architectural culture. The exhibition, its catalogue and symposium will analyze the importance of critical globalization for the development of architecture and the world culture.
