The Exhibition

Ever since 2012, Time Space Existence has been presented as the extensive biennial architecture exhibition organised and hosted by the European Cultural Centre that contemplates the fundamental philosophical concepts of Time, Space and Existence. It brings together an international and eclectic group of participants working across different disciplines who present completed and ongoing projects, innovative proposals, and utopian dreams of architectural expressions focusing and reflecting upon these topics in line with contemporary discussions.

Organised every other year, the exhibition Time Space Existence aims to stimulate an exchange among architects, universities, legendary masters, emerging studios, established global practices, designers, artists, photographers, developers, and engineering companies, who together can have a crucial role in shaping the future of our ways of living.

The historic venue of Palazzo Bembo, close to Rialto Bridge and facing Canal Grande, with its symmetrical room distribution across both floors, is the ideal venue to exhibit works that blend an extraordinary combination of mediums, perfectly complementing the content of all projects.
