Spaces of Desire


“Architecture cannot satisfy your wildest fantasies,
but it may exceed the limits set by them.”
Bernard Tschumi

“Only woman’s mood swings and ambitions are liable for the murder of material because an ornament in the woman’s service will live forever. (…) However, woman’s ornament virtually corresponds with savage’s ornament as it has an erotic meaning.”
Adolf Loos

The exhibition presents, questions and interprets relations of sexuality, the construction of sexual and gender identities, architectonic space and architectonic production using modernistic and contemporary materials. The exhibition examines how gender roles, and sexual relations and stereotypes, in architecture materialize.
