Abstract (English)

In her introduction to an exhibition presenting 81 international architects, Burchnett discusses the potential of theoretical or experimental architecture as a type of sculpture. Larsen seeks to posit a bridge between sculpture and architecture without resorting to revivalism, while Lippard takes up the archetypal topic of the box as a basic unit in architecture sculptural vocabulary. Volume two documents projects at eight institutions in conjunction with documentary exhibitions. Biographical notes. 26 bibl. ref.
