Vitra Design Museum
Konstantin Grcic is one of the leading designers of the present day. Some of Grcic’s designs – such as »Chair_One« (2004) or the »Mayday« lamp (1999) – have already attained the status of design classics. With »Konstantin Grcic – Panorama«, the Vitra Design Museum shows his largest solo exhibition to date. It provides a comprehensive overview of Grcic’s oeuvre and is at the same time a new design project in its own right. Especially for this show, Grcic is developing spatial installations that set in scene his personal visions for life in the world of tomorrow – both pensively radical and powerfully profound. More

The Alhambra palace complex is a highly renowned monument of Moorish culture in southern Spain and is officially recognised as a world heritage site. The architect Álvaro Siza has known the palace since his childhood and repeatedly engaged with the site over the past decades. In 2010, an international jury chose Siza to create the Alhambra’s new entrance and visitor centre. The exhibition presents Siza’s designs via a selection of drawings, interviews and models, and demonstrates how he brings his own architectural language into harmony with the Alhambra and the surrounding landscape. A cooperation with the Aedes Architecture Forum, Berlin. More
