Architecture & Arts documents in over 1000 illustrations the innovations brought about by painters, sculptors, designers, writers, photographers, and filmmakers into the field of architecture. At the same time, it reveals the digressions of architects into the visual arts. A contamination of the arts especially in architecture is seen more and more today because the definition and boundaries of architecture itself are undergoing a transformation. Architecture has gone beyond its functional and objective ideals to allow an eruption and a new visual development of subjective expression. Architecture is leaving behind its rational dimension and moving towards a more fantastic representation exalting the forms and materials. Gehry's Guggenheim Bilbao and Peter Cook's Graz Museum are perfect examples of a spectacularity in which the buildings "perform" and embody a vision of the world, which can also take on biomoprhic, zoomorphic, fantastic aspects in direct antithesis to the impersonal and abstract production that dominated modernism and post-modernism. This book examines architecture that has embodied an artistic vision and likewise the contribution of the different artistic media that have found a reference point in architecture with the intent of exalting this reciprocal metamorphosis. This richly-illustrated publication can be seen as a chronological encyclopedia which offers a complete overview of architects and artists from the historic avant-gardes to the present.
