In the larger part of architectural history religion was the main patron of architecture. Most often when we talk about architecture in history we are to reffer to the religious structures. In this way the contribution of religious necessity and philosophies in architecture is always undenyable even in the contemporary architecture. On going programs in Goethe gives a light to these points.
Everyone is invited to join in this event.

Read What Critic Says

[this part is written by Inga Saffron]
"The Guggenheim retrospective is a big, messy affair that is likely to be difficult for the average design civilian to process - a little like the mercurial Hadid herself.
