Partly with interactive exhibits, the exhibition takes visitors into the world of architectural games, ranging from doll's houses to ego-shooter games. What are the utopias and dystopias they evoke? What values do they convey, criticise, or confirm? Which places, themes, and ways of life are left out, and which games fill these gaps? These are just a few of the topics addressed by the show.
