The architecture exhibition serves as a means for the imparting of architecture. For this purpose, architecture is represented by media. By means of media, only a representation of the actual exhibition object is shown and important perceptible characteristics of architecture get lost. This diploma thesis examines the different media of representation of architecture and how it is perceived, as well as the direct perception of architecture on site. The focus is on the media used for imparting architecture and the origins and history of architecture exhibitions. Furthermore, reference projects for imparting architecture in urban areas will be analyzed and differences, issues and potentials will be shown. As a conclusion and on the basis of the previous analysis, a concept for an exhibition in urban public space, using existing architecture as the exhibition object is developed. The aims of this exhibition are, on the one hand, imparting characteristics of architecture using the object itself, on the other hand, a more conscious perception of the constructed environment as well as imparting information and knowledge.
