Overview

Not Architecture But Evidence That It Exists is the first monograph devoted to the watercolors of artist and architect Lauretta Vinciarelli. Vinciarelli's remarkable artworks of imagined light, space, water, and landscape are clearly autobiographical in nature, reflecting her experience in and devotion to architecture in places like southwest Texas and Italy. Vinciarelli's visions are not meant to be built; as Vinciarelli herself has said, "The paintings are of spaces I know that look nothing like what I paint." Vinciarelli's watercolors are presented in a full-color portfolio that is the centerpiece of the book. Also included are essays by Diana Agrest, K. Michael Hays, and Joan Ockman.
