Anish Kapoor (born 1954) prefers to withhold his architectural projects from the conditions of both sculpture and architecture, underlining instead their non-secular function: "they are all about a certain kind of religious space," he has asserted. "Architectural Projects" spans over 20 years of such works, and is the first book devoted to them. It features internationally acclaimed structures such as "Marsyas" at Tate Modern in London and "Cloud Gate" in Chicago, as well as various unrealized projects and works in progress, including an eagerly awaited series of new subway stations designed for the city of Naples, which Kapoor describes as "very vulva-like," as a recognition (rather than denial) of their subterranean location. A comprehensive survey of over 40 projects is illustrated with initial sketches, drawings and architectural renderings, providing a rare insight into the inner workings of a fascinating interdisciplinary and collaborative process.
