Existence was an exhibition of drawings and models by three New York architects: Gordon Gilbert, Taeg Nishimoto and Kyong Park. Through different design approaches, the architects explored the phenomenological potential of architecture. The common impetus for such exploration was the abstract concept of existence, which instigated further discussion of the dynamic relationships of the seen and unseen and of participation and experience. With the shared conviction that architecture is an “act of existence,” the featured architects used the exhibition as a platform for philosophical inquiry.
