MAXXI - Yona Friedman. Mobile Architecture, People’s Architecture

A legendary figure, a fundamental point of reference for artists and architects, an icon of post-war Utopian architecture. The exhibition, born out of the collaboration with the Power Station of Art in Shanghai presents the intense and conflictual relationship between the Utopian dimension of design and its realization through the work of Yona Friedman.
The theory of mobile architecture, conceived by Friedman in 1950s, called into question the Modernist vision whereby the inhabitants are required to adapt to a building and not the reverse: through models, drawings and installations the exhibition recounts the development of this theory while at the same time exploring the theme of improvisation as a “possibility” in the world of architecture, as theorised by Friedman from the 1970s.
 
The exhibition will be on view until October 29, 2017
