Frederick J. Kiesler was an architect, sculptor, painter, designer, and art historian. He was tireless in his pursuit of a radical new concept of interior spaces: his dream was a polydimensional living space, an organic continuum in which color, form, and light, combined with magical and mythical themes, would create a new cosmos. His so-called Endless House, imagined and designed in the 1950s, though never realized, stayed with him all his life, and has fascinated and influenced other architects for decades. Endless Spacereconstructs Kiesler's ideals of living and his concept of modernity with extensive illustrations from Kiesler's archives and texts about his theories and career. An essential addition to the history of 20th-century architecture and design.
