Unknown IPARTERV – The Halcion Days of a Design Company 1948–1970
The Unknown IPARTERV exhibition were preceded by two exhibition organisation courses – one to lay the foundations of the underlying research and one to help support actual implementation of the exhibition, and both involving architecture and graphic design students. The exhibition is intended to present the activities of of the most significant professional hubs of post-war modern architecture, the Industrial Architecture Design Company (Hungarian abbreviation: IPARTERV) and the buildings designed in the 50s and 60s, which today are only known to a narrow professional circle.
In a partial departure from conventional architectural history, underlining the socio-cultural correlations, and seen through the lens of today’s current issues, the exhibition attempts to highlight the significance of IPARTERV’s legacy that remained shrouded in obscurity until now, while reflecting on its values as they continue to emerge as a result of today’s reuse efforts.
