With special thanks to owner ‘Bridges’ and facilitator, ‘Peak Development’, Cityscapes Foundation opens the new season with the exposition “Time, Space & Architecture” at Huidekoperstraat 26-28: A typical modernist office building in a typical 17th Century housing street in the centre of Amsterdam, a building in current transition to become suited to the 21 century.

The building, it’s position and it’s state of transition provide several associations with Space, Time and Architecture, the wellknown book by Siegfried Gideon. Where Gideon emphasized the interdependence between architecture with the space and time (in the sense of ‘period’) in which it occurs,  the exhibition brings a new take on these intertwined elements, thus its title ‘Time, Space and Architecture’. With more space than ever, the exposition expands over the five floors of the building, exploring Time, Space and architecture and the relations between them. It may take some time to reach the last floor (NB, no elevator available), but we think it will definitely be worth it!
