gta EXHIBITIONS | The gta Exhibitions division organizes architectural exhibitions. It has been part of the Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture (Institut für Geschichte und Theorie der Architektur, gta) in the Department of Architecture at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich since 1975.
PROGRAMME | Through its exhibitions and the accompanying publications, the exhibitions division presents the results of the Institute’s research and teaching work to the public, as well as topics of current interest in architectural practice. In addition to its own exhibitions, which focus on Swiss architects in particular, touring exhibitions from other galleries also convey architectural viewpoints from Switzerland and abroad. The exhibitions division presents up to ten exhibitions annually. With its extensive and varied programme, gta Exhibitions provides a
unique platform among Swiss architectural institutions.
PRIVATE PREVIEWS | Well-known speakers are invited to present lectures and lead panel discussions at the private previews when
the exhibitions are opened.
EXHIBITION ROOMS | gta Exhibitions has two spaces at its disposal in the Department of Architecture on the ETH Campus at
Hönggerberg, Science City – the Architecture Foyer and ARchENA (each consisting of 250 square metres). In addition, it also organizes exhibitions in the entrance hall of the ETH’s main building in central Zurich (350 square meters). Entry to the exhibitions is free,
and opening times are extensive.
ROTATIONS | In collaboration with other institutions and industry, gta Exhibitions also prepares touring exhibitions that are presented
both nationally and internationally.
PUBLICATIONS | Finely designed books are published to accompany several of the exhibition projects. The books are prepared by gta Exhibitions in collaboration with the architects involved, and are distributed by gta Publishers. Catalogues from outside exhibitions
are also accepted for resale.
