“Renzo Piano: Genius Loci” focuses on the architecture of Istanbul Modern’s new museum building and its design and construction process. Designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW), the new building greets art lovers at the same location where Istanbul Modern opened its doors in 2004 as Türkiye's first museum of modern and contemporary art. The title of the exhibition refers to the architectural understanding of Renzo Piano, whose vision is to integrate tangible elements and non-physical qualities of the building site. “Renzo Piano: Genius Loci” examines the new museum building, which Piano designed, taking inspiration from the light and atmosphere unique to the Bosphorus and Istanbul. The exhibition also surveys the various museums and cultural centres that Renzo Piano has realised throughout his career in different parts of the world as well as the transformation Istanbul Modern has undergone since its foundation.
