Architecture, City and Thought Hub is based on the theoretical and practical approach “emotional architecture” of the architect Mathias Goeritz (Gdansk, Poland, 1915), in contrast to the mere functionalism and aesthetics captured by traditional documentary photography of architecture, this exhibition shows buildings, spaces and fragments of the city that convey emotions.

This approach addresses notions of creative freedom and the recovery of the social, political and economic functions of architecture, as a result, the exhibition displays a series of photographic projects that raise questions on how we establish the spaces we inhabit and what their function is.
