“Transformations. Burckhardt+Partner” at Architekturgalerie München

“Everything changes without passing away completely. It is important to accompany these processes in an orderly manner.” With the double exhibition TRANSFORMATIONS, the renowned Swiss architects Burckhardt+Partner present works in the Architekturgalerie München in the Kunstareal and in the Bunker that are entirely dedicated to structural transformation and change processes.

 

“Transformations” Burckhardt+Partner

 

 

In the Architekturgalerie München in the Kunstareal, architecture can be experienced and grasped in three atmospherically designed rooms. The exhibition shows a broad spectrum of works by the Swiss firm Burckhardt+Partner from the almost 70-year history of the firm. This exhibition also focuses on the transformation process. It is about change and a profound development from something existing. “This can lead to something completely new, but also to a conversion of the existing,” explains Wolfgang Hardt, Partner at Burckhardt+Partner. “Transformation also means changing viewing habits and developing new perceptions.
