Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.

CLOSED: Italian Cultural Institute

27 February - 03 April
Organized by: Italian Cultural Institute
Venue: Italian Cultural Institute, 686 Park Avenue
New York

The Fondazione Magistretti celebrates, in 2020, the centenary of Vico Magistretti’s birth with a traveling exhibition designed for the network of the Italian Cultural Institutes. For the first time, the Foundation makes its archival heritage available to reveal the works of the great Italian architect and designer to an international audience.


The exhibition traces Magistretti's sixty-year career focusing on both fields of Magistretti’s work: architecture and design, by highlighting his most outstanding projects and those less known, his architectural projects conceived for Milan and those devised for elsewhere, and signature industrial products and furnitures that are in thousands of houses around the world.
