Abstract
The purpose for this thesis, "A Pavilion for Time", is to allow an unhindered exploration of phenomenological time. It is to go beyond, to transcend a convention towards empiricism. The result is an uncritical state, unhindered, uncluttered, a place of pure perception, an existential autoclave.

As a phenomenological exploration with architecture as the vehicle, this project investigates time as experienced. It is a heuristic excercise. Its goal is to encourage or rather enhance an understanding of phenomenological time. This thesis does not attempt to answer the question "What is time?" but rather, with architecture, examines the question "How do we, as cognizant human beings, exist with time?"
