A dialogue between sculpture and architecture gives a new perspective on the history of modernism.
Architecture and sculpture have often inspired each other, particularly in the 20th century. Modern sculpture offers numerous examples of the use of architectural language - the dissolution of volume in Constructivism, for example, or the focus on elementary geometric forms in Cubism. At the same time, recent modern architecture has forged increasingly close links with art. Indeed, the digital, biomorphic projects of such blob- masters as Greg Lynn and NOX raise the question of whether contemporary architecture is not actually a form of sculpture realized in buildings. Featuring more than 350 illustrations, this richly illustrated book examines a phenomenon that has previously attracted little attention: the dialogue between these two fields of aesthetics, described in nine chapters presenting astonishing juxtapositions of original sculptures by outstanding artists and models of corresponding architectures from different periods.
