Exhibit A is the first book to explore the world's most significant architectural exhibitions of the 20th century.
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.
Exhibitions that accompanied significant historic events, including: Venice Architecture Biennale; Expo 70 in Osaka; Montreal World's Fair 1967; New York World's Fair 1964; Seattle World's Fair 1962; Brussels World's Fair 1958; and the Festival of Britain 1951, among many others.
