ARCHITECTURE, URBANISM & DESIGN

Expanded Field

 

Astute readers of art theory will recognize the title of this book, which refers to Rosalind Krauss's seminal essay, "Sculpture in the Expanded Field." In this image-drenched book, Berman and Burnham explore art/architecture installation practices through various disciplines: architecture, interiors, sculpture, and landscape. Culled from their 2012 exhibition, Architecture in the Expanded Field, the book presents 65 projects organized into 12 chapters: constructed landscapes, tectonic structures, spatial distortions, earthworks/land art, etc. The selection of projects is solid and the presentation is aided greatly by drawings that imbue even the most artistic projects with architectural qualities.
