The exhibition Translations seeks out the boundaries of our imagination. The visitor is included in a quest for the mysterious and often lost elements in architecture. Schenk Hattori explores how the prehistoric hut, essentially a microcosm that contains the wider world, can be understood in our current era. The first method for creating architecture was the ancient process in which humans tried to render the world practicable and above all tangible. Determining the shape and size of the reality was always grounded in mankind’s capacity for observation. Observation remains a universal human trait to this day, irrespective of cultural background.
