This lavishly illustrated collection features designers and projects that push the boundaries of art and architecture. Architecture: Art explores the disparate ways in which contemporary artists and architects handle the blurring lines between their disciplines. Contemporary art often oversteps the limits of its traditional concepts and modes of presentation, increasingly moving into virtual and actual spaces. Similarly, many of today’s architects depart from the principles of classical modernism and historical models to integrate artistic concepts into the design and construction of their buildings.\nThe book highlights the most exciting examples of these interdisciplinary activities, from Zaha Hadid’s Guggenheim Museum in Taichung, Taiwan to Richard Meier’s Jubilee Church in Rome, Italy, and from Hiroshi Sugimoto’s Go’o Shrine to Richard Serra’s Torqued Ellipses. Profiles of the featured artists and architects are included, along with an introductory essay elucidating the historical foundations from which architecture and art have coevolved to the present day.
