After the architecture Biennale in Venice, the exhibition on the work of Silvia Gmür and Reto Gmür Architekten goes to Galerie d’Architecture in Paris.

Silvia Gmür Reto Gmür Architekten: un hôpital est une maison d’homme exhibition, Paris

The exhibition title is inspired by a statement Le Corbusier made about the project of the hospital in Venice in 1964, emphasising the importance of coming up with criteria for hospital design that take people's needs into account.
Inspired by this statement, the exhibition suggests types and forms of architecture that can respond to people's specific needs despite the complexity of hospital design through the work of Swiss architects Silvia Gmür and Reto Gmür.
The exhibition presents six hospital designs built by the studio in Switzerland and other parts of the world, as well as two homes. Silvia Gmür'sees the projects as representing key human needs which architecture must satisfy.

The exhibition opened at Harvard Graduate School of Design early in 2014, travelled to the Palazzo Ducale in Venice for the 14th Biennale architecture exhibition, and is now at the Galerie d'Architecture in Paris until January 10, 2015.
