Art & Architecture

A bookseries edited by Cristina Bechtler published by Springer, Vienna/New York

Architecture and fine arts are important parts of our culture, and instrumental in shaping our society. They have always been in fruitful interaction and cooperation. The series "Art and Architecture in Discussion" is based on the view to create a forum for an often missing dialogue between international architects and artists. Cristina Bechtler conceives and publishes the bookseries, which includes discussions with Frank O. Gehry/Kurt W. Forster, Rémy Zaugg/Herzog & de Meuron, Mario Merz/Mario Botta, Jacques Herzog/Jeff Wall/Philip Ursprung, Vito Acconci/Kenny Schachter/Lilian Pfaff, John Baldessari/Liam Gillick/Lawrence Weiner/Beatrix Ruf, Thomas Demand/Peter Saville/Hedi Slimane/Hans Ulrich Obrist, Ken Adam/Katharina Fritsch/Bice Curiger/Hans Ulrich Obrist, and Mike Kelley/Jim Shaw/John Welchman.
