An active landscape of works by key artists and architects of our time, the Garden presents full-scale works in place of the usual drawings, models, and documentation that are customary in architecture shows. While architects manifest their involvement in debates that transcend edification, works by contemporary artists testify for the dissemination of architectural concerns beyond the realm of standardized, identifiable built space.
Animation, performance, post-humanism, artificial intelligence, and the search for the Deep Self, are key elements in this choral assemblage. Haunted by the predominant feelings of historical urgency and disorientation that characterize our existence in the present era, the works featured in this space also offer means of overcoming the pressures of our time.
