In recent years, more and more attention has come to be focused on the innovative ferment of American architecture. Among the architects responsible for this creative surge, John Hejduk occupies a special place as guide and trailblazer. He has pioneered new forms of presentation which are now widely employed both here and abroad. These presentations, whihc benefit from the inclusion of hard-edge painted and assembled elements, manifests an unusual congenialtiy to gallery presentation.
This exhibition deals with his poetic sensitivity to the ambiguities of contemporary urban life. This sensitivity is an important source of his vision. We see this as offering an important perspective not just to the discussion of architecture, but also to the understanding of contemporary urban existence. The exhibit surveys his work, including drawings and models from all phases of his career.
