Architecture, Disciplinarity and the Arts
Publisher: University of Ghent 2010 Author: Andrew Leach, John Macarthur ISBN: 9789076714370 Format: Softcover, 220pp, 220x160mm
There is a great deal of interest and activity in the interdisciplinary space between the visual arts and architecture. Many artists use building materials or architectural representations. Architects and critics speak, with few cautions, of architecture as "art". Is it possible, then, that architecture is returning to a longer-term, older position as an art with sibling relations to other disciplines? What is it today to speak of architecture as an art, and what should we make of the long history of this question? The essays in this volume address these issues on conceptual and historical grounds, the writers drawing from papers and discussions presented at a colloquium of the Architecture Theory, Criticism and History (ATCH) Research Group of the University of Queensland, Australia, hosted by Brisbane's Institute for Modern Art on August 17 and 18, 2007.
