"Ours is a time," as one British reviewer of this book wrote, "when art looks more and more like architecture, and architecture looks quite like art." In his slyly provocative tome The Art-Architecture Complex, Hal Foster doesn't simply walk us through the history of the merging of these two genres; he raises pertinent questions about whether this increasing trend is necessarily a good thing. With example after example of building-sized art and artistic building, he shows how we are remaking cityscapes, not always in beneficial ways. A thoughtful statement; worthy of a large crossover readership.
