Architecture Days at KIT

30 and 31 January 2020

During Architecture Days, KIT – Kunst im Tunnel will offer free admission, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in the history of this unusual exhibition space. It all started with the construction of the Rheinufertunnel in 1990—a major undertaking.
Discover the KIT archive, exhibition catalogs, documentary photographs of the construction site on the banks of the Rhine, and original plans from 2006.

Our Program:

30 and 31 January, 1 to 5 p.m.

30 January, 6 p.m.
