New Forms Architecture in the 1990

New Forms Architecture in the 1990

Book Description
New Forms
Architecture in the 1990s

In the 1990s architecture has evolved considerably despite economic constraints. The new architecture has been guided by the rapid progress of computer assisted design and a newly rediscovered affinity for the arts. Indeed, many architects - from France’s Dominique Perrault, creator of the new Bibliothèque Nationale de France, to Japan’s Tadao Ando - explain their work in terms of references to minimalism or land art. At the same time art itself has veered towards installations and works which approach architecture. These influences have enriched and diversified contemporary architecture in the developed world.

The Author:
Philip Jodidio (born 1954) studied art history and economics at Harvard and has been editor-in-chief of the French art magazine “Connaissance des Arts” in Paris since 1980. He has written numerous books and articles on contemporary architecture. –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
