‘Concrete Geometries’ is a research initiative at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, investigating how geometric aspects of space such as size, shape or relative position of figures are perceived and influence behavior. A corridor, so narrow that strangers brush shoulders; a platform through a densely inhabited house, changing the relationship between inhabitant and visitor; a room reshaped through a graphic pattern; a space under a motorway, sloped in a way that it is rendered useless for those who need it most.

This exhibition, curated by Marianne Müller and Olaf Kneer, features works by emerging and renowned artists, architects and designers from around the world including the Vienna-based architecture practice SPAN architecture and design who will show their Austrian pavillion from the Shanghai Expo 2010.
