What is art? What is
architecture? We are very
interested in learning about what architecture is, in finding out about
today's possibilities for architecture and urbanism, in what these
disciplines can contribute to everyday life, to everyone's life. In
looking at architecture in this way, art becomes very important
because, in the past few decades, it has developed more interesting
strategies, it has attracted more interesting and creative people than
in the field of architecture... the art-like character of many of our
buildings arises from the fact that they are so architectural.
Herzog & deMeuron
Two projects about landscape and architecture: a plaster block project in the Studio and a design project on the South Bank. The Unit Trip was to Texas: we were the first group to visit Donald Judd's Chinati Foundation in Marfafrom outside the USA.
