“Designing in Dialogue” - Architectural exhibit

When I visited Rio de Janiero last summer, I went to an exhibition by architectural firm gmp.von Gerkan, Marg and Partners at the MAC museum.

I learned that over the past 45 years, Meinhard von Gerkan, Volkwin Marg and their partners have designed and constructed buildings in virtually all the major cities of Germany, numerous other European countries, in Asia, Africa, and South America. 

The firm has become known worldwide for its enduring, logical architecture that is based on a “dialogue” with its location. 

The range of commissions undertaken by gmp include:
  • museums
  • opera houses
  • stadiums
  • government buildings
  • airports
  • railway stations
  • fairgrounds
  • office buildings
  • university campuses
  • homes
  • and even whole cities.
