At the same time, it reveals the digressions of architects into the visual arts, a discipline that has shared with architecture a common project of a radical, at times visionary, aesthetic transformation of reality. The volume includes works by Malevich, Cartier-Bresson, Steichen, Terragni, Depero, Fritz Lang, Le Corbusier, Gehry, Rossi, Piano, and Oldenburg, to name a few. This richly illustrated volume offers a complete overview of architects and artists from the historic avant-gardes (Futurism, Suprematism, Constructivism, Dadaism, Neoplasticism, Expressionism, Surrealism, and the modern movements until the postwar period) to the contemporary world, starting from Informal-Spatialist work and continuing with Situationism, Brutalism, Pop Art, Minimalism, and Post modernism to the present day.
