The Dialogues in Time exhibition is, to some extent, the continuation of the first successful presentation of the exhibition New in the Old, held ten years ago. The theme of contemporary architecture in historical environments is often presented as a conflict between architects and conservationists. Unfortunately, this simplification is very misleading and in a way prevents both sides from engaging in a meaningful dialogue. The potential conflict is not one between the new and the old, but between quality and low quality. Architecture is an endless story that cannot be interrupted or even closed. However, just as it is senseless not to allow new architecture into a historic city, neither can architects be freed of their responsibility towards the city. The only way to find meaningful solutions is through open dialogue.
