18 stations between MAXXI B.A.S.E. and the building designed by Zaha Hadid will host photographs of buildings constructed between 2000 and 2010, selected by architects, critics, architecture students and, on a big wall, visitors’ favourites.

The architecture you like© Photographs of buildings by Jean Nouvel, Foster, Libeskind, Elemental, Kere, Eisenman, Heringer and many more, all together in an exhibition curated by the research group GIZMO, made up of architecture historians and critics. 18 stations featuring images of architectural projects built between 2000 and 2010, selected by architects, critics, historians and architecture students from Italy and abroad. The stations are set up between Zaha Hadid’s MAXXI and MAXXI B.A.S.E. (Library, Archives, Studies, Publishing), the museum’s new research and documentation centre. The event provides for active participation on the part of visitors, who are asked in first person to identify their favourite architectural projects built in the last 10 years and attach a picture of them to the big wall set up in the MAXXI B.A.S.E. with a comment identifying the reasons for their choice, in an invitation for visitors to exercise their own critical sense.
