Looking beyond the well-publicised phenomenon of the art museum, this title explores the many different ways that contemporary architecture exchanges ideas with art; how are architects inspired by art? How do artists draw inspiration from architecture? How might architects and artist work together on schemes? The pivotal figure for artistic architectural practice is Le Corbusier. Here 'Art and Architecture' pays homage to him by publishing Dessins, a seminal text printed in full for the first time in English and by giving a full account of his work as a painter. Through interviews with three internationally renowned architects, Will Alsop, Zaha Hadid and Steven Holl, it becomes apparent that there are many different routes to incorporating art into the design process. An exclusive interview with Terence Riley, the architecture curator of MoMA in New York, looks at the way architecture is now being successfully shown within the context of the modern art museum.
