Donald Judd: architecture
Hatje Cantz, 2003 - Architecture - 141 pages
Donald Judd's "specific objects" (as he termed them) undertook a revolutionary analysis and redefinition of sculpture, establishing him as a leading exponent of what came to be called Minimalism. Somewhat less known are Judd's numerous architectural and furniture designs, works which formally are closely related to his art objects, but which reflect his abiding interest in utility. In 1971, Judd bought an old fort near Marfa, Texas, and by systematically acquiring and transforming local property, he amassed a huge ensemble of contemporary art, with permanent installations of his own work and that of Carl Andre, John Chamberlain, Dan Flavin and others. Donald Judd: Architecturepresents drawings, design sketches, ground plans and photographs of the grounds and architecture of this Minimalist desert oasis, and celebrates Judd's role as its visionary architect and stage director. This book first appeared in German in 1991, and has been thoroughly revised and expanded for this, its first English edition.
