The Art of The Building Site Construction and Demolition from the 16th to the 21st Century

from November 9, 2018 to March 11, 2019

Upper Gallery of Temporary Exhibitions

How Western Man has seen, designed and imagined the place where building occurs since the Renaissance. The great diversity of observers, the plurality of images and the different audiences they turn to show that this is a powerful theme, which is far broader than the fields of architecture and technique.
