gmp Architekten's touring exhibition, 'Designing in Dialogue: The Architecture of von Gerkan, Marg and Partners' is currently being hosted by the Chinese National Museum in Beijing until August 25. In this exhibition, gmp will provide an overview of their work: sketches and drawings provide an idea of the conceptual thoughts, models present designs in three dimensions and photos document the completed buildings. The exhibited gmp projects are grouped regionally by continent and in six categories which cover important fundamental, practical and theoretical aspects of gmp’s work. More information after the break.

The six categories include variety and uniformity,  mobility, urbanity, society and responsibility, innovation and identity, and tradition.

The grouping provides greater clarity and illustrates the multiplicity of thought needed in the approach to architecture. However, in gmp’s holistic understanding of architecture, this variety always leads to uniformity. In consequence, the “variety and uniformity” pairing is of over-arching importance, whereas “mobility” and “urbanity” can be seen as important aspects of the architectural context of “society and responsibility”. This means that a project grouped in the “innovation and identity” pairing could also be considered under the aspects of “society and responsibility” or “tradition”.

The architects are also cooperating with the Chinese architectural magazine UED and Verseidag since the museum was converted and extended by gmp. So far, the touring exhibition has been shown in Vietnam, Brazil and Chile. Further dates in China are scheduled.
