The anthropological change of the architectural profession from the twentieth-century stereotype of the charismatic grandmaster to the growing presence of women, collectives and studio couples.
The exhibition Good News aspires to document how new figures are infusing new forces into contemporary architecture. In particular, concerning the Museum’s Collection and the aim of expanding it, the exhibition pays particular attention to studios’ work directed or co-chaired by female designers and those professional bodies that are more aware of the changes taking place integrating them into their design process.
On display, among other things, are some of the names and stories that have had, or still have, a crucial impact: from Charlotte Perriand to the 1970s collectives, from Elizabeth Diller to “realised” young promises such as Frida Escobedo and much more. The exhibition also includes a series of video interviews with authors/authors that reconstruct the stories and theories that accompany this narrative.
