The exhibition ARCHITECTURE AVAILABLE! is a cursory, yet not coincidental flight over several European cities. It documents and proves that successful models of conversions of former industrial buildings and premises can change into important and famous cultural centres with the support of local communities and administration. The documentation with examples refers to new attitudes of artists, architects and urban planners or simply society where the abandoned becomes the long-desired, the poorly adaptable becomes the suitable, and the old and weary becomes the new and hopeful. Those are places that radically reassess the relation of traditions and the present in art and architecture.
