Living.  Changing.  New. Not yesterday, not tomorrow, only today can be given form. Only this architecture creates. Create form out of the nature of the task with the means of our time. This is our work. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, 1923 Through representations of architecture—paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints,  photographs, and scale models—this exhibition examines architectural space  and the built environment in an attempt to articulate a sense of place and the  physical experience of inhabiting a building. As literature offers a vehicle for  transporting us to different times and places, so too images of real and imagined  architecture allow us to wander in and out of Gothic cathedrals, ancient ruins and  castles, and even Piranesi's fantastic colosseum. Through this wandering we  experience a place or a building—be it a small, domestic dwelling or a large- scale monument—in a very personal way which in turn can facilitate a deeper  understanding and appreciation of that space and its architecture. This exhibition juxtaposes work from Egypt's Old Kingdom pyramids, classical
