ArchiSculpture: Dialogues between Architecture and Sculpture
October 27, 2005–February 12, 2006
ArchiSculpture: Dialogues between Architecture and Sculpture from the 18th Century to the Present Day, gathers 180 objects by approximately 60 artists and 50 architects, including Gustave Eiffel, Louis I. Kahn, Pablo Picasso, and Frank Lloyd Wright. The innovative exhibition explores the evolving relationship between sculpture and architecture. Highlights include a collaborative installation by architect Jean Nouvel and artist Gerhard Merz, computer-animated blob architecture by Greg Lynn, and a nine-meter-tall, enterable "archisculpture" in the museum park, erected by architects Herzog & de Meuron.
