What kind of houses do we live in? How do today’s architects design our homes? How have notions of housing changed over the last generation? This exhibition analyses investigations and answers to these questions through the work of several architects. Based on the collection of MAXXI, the National Museum of XXI Century Arts in Rome, the exhibition moves from small-scale shelters to large collective housing projects, revealing complex and hybrid experiences that bear witness to new relationships between individuals and communities. The exhibition takes pairs of projects as its starting point. Original materials from MAXXI’s historic archive of Italian architects provide a revealing counterpoint for works of contemporary architecture. In Lisbon, the pairs presented in Rome are each complemented by a Portuguese example, expanding the meaning and readings arising from the material presented.

Curators Margherita Guccione, Pippo Ciorra and André Tavares and Sérgio Catumba
