Within this research, the exhibitions are considered primarily as institutions, and as a place of interaction among different identities through choice of exhibits, their presentation, spatial layout and the selection and use of the accompanying texts. The context of the research thus put into place will attempt to answer the question of how it is possible to construct a history of the exhibitions – which are forgotten, often without sufficient documentation or records about them. In addition, it will be reconsidered in which manner the exhibitions helped to create and promote the idea of architecture during the 20th century, overlapping with the shifting of discourses, broader philosophical debates and technological innovations.
