50 Years of The Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture

The Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture (gta) was founded at the architecture department of the ETH Zurich in 1967 – a teaching facility and research establishment with an archive, publishing house and an exhibition programme, which as the “gta” quickly achieved international renown.
The fiftieth anniversary of the institute is an occasion to simultaneously undertake a review of the past and an outlook on the future. Numerous events and exhibitions in this jubilee year provide insights into the teaching and research activities reflecting the spirit of history and the present-day, theory and praxis. These four very cornerstones of the institute have constituted the complementary yet simultaneously antagonistic referential frameworks for the gta’s work since 1967.
