Nonstop Transformation

Exhibition at Salone Verde, Venice
May 19 - November 26, 2023

Opening May 18, 2023, 6:30 pm

UMBAU (conversion) means the continuous transformation of existing structures. Considering today’s climate goals, UMBAU must move from being the exception to becoming the rule. Our exhibition contributes to this by discussing seven projects by gmp as precise case studies of conversion practices from the 21st century dealing with the architectural heritage of the Moderne movement. What the projects have in common is a conceptual approach to UMBAU, which, starting from a comprehensive inventory of the existing, continues and develops the old as an architectural evolution. Practice shows that UMBAU must also integrate new settings and superimpositions. UMBAU is not unique, but continues into the future as a nonstop transformation, as a collaboration spanning generations.
