Re: Is architecture art?
As an art history student, I found Meier's point of view to be very interesting, particularly that not all buildings are architecture. After working with the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts in St. Louis, I learned that the space, designed by a Japanese architect, was created with the notion that architecture/the building forms and molds around an existing fluid space. In this sense, architecture is in fact distinguishable from buildings, which are erected for practical or economic reasons, since it is created with theory and thought as is other important art. Moreover, it is interesting to consider how architecture and current art movements interact and exchange ideas.
