This exhibition is a window on the universal language of Friedman, which, applied in different contexts, can respond to the ecological, social and sustainability issues facing contemporary society.

It takes viewers in a journey through the development of Friedman’s famous 1950s theory of Mobile Architecture, through sketches, models and animations that questions the nature of architecture and asks who benefit from it from a sociological, psychological and practical point of view.
