Item description for Architecture: Art by Philip Jodidio...

This lavishly illustrated collection features projects and designers 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 boundaries 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. The 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 co-evolved to the present day.

Reviews - What do customers think about Architecture: Art?

The similarity of architecture and art is more important than their differences...?  Mar 12, 2006
Prestel publishes quality books both in terms of construction quality as well as its context. This book is no exception. The question as to when is architecture art and art architecture has been debated since their birht. Instead of providing an answer to this debatable topic, this book provides a compilation of projects that acts as a reference so that the reader can surmise his own. Projects include Christo and Jeanne-Claude's The Gates, Frank Gehry's DG Bank, Eric Owen Moss' The Umbrella, etc. Each project is laid out in either a 2 or 4 page spread with text featuring the designer's background as well as the project description. After reading this book, one has to realize that it is not so important to categorize these projects into absolutes, but rather both/and instead of either/or.
