AN EXHIBITION mapping Slovak architecture from 1900 up to today is on display at the Hönggerberg Polytechnic School in Zurich, Switzerland.

Entitled Impulses and Reflections, the show documents the individual developmental phases that Slovak architecture has gone through. It aims to present this architecture to western Europe, where it has been lesser-known than on the other side of the former Iron Curtain.

"Such a complex presentation of the origin and development of the modernist movement in Slovakia has never before toured Europe," architect Ján Bahna, one of the exhibition's organisers, told the daily SME.

The exhibition started its European tour in Vienna and, after Zurich, will move to Munich, Lyon, and Oslo.
