In order to maintain the highest level of progression in design, interdisciplinary co–operation between art and architecture is of key importance. This volume explores a selection of the collaborations that have achieved the greatest success, through presenting extracts from issues of the influential journal Architectural Design.At the most basic level, art might be consdiered as work without function, and architecture may be seen to respond more to necessity. However, contemporary art – in its most vital, demonstrative and extreme aspects – explores new relationships with ′place′ that follow design processes similar to those of architecture. Art and architecture evolve within the same field of inquiry: the essential issue of spaceInterdisciplinary Architecture presents both historicial background on the complex relationship between art and architecture, and examples of related contemporary projects. In an introductory essay, Nicoletta Trasi gives an overview discussing the recurring issue of the integration of the arts, from Art Nouveau to De Stijl and Bauhaus, highlighting the insidious and uneven ground on which the art–architecture relationship has evolved. A concluding paragraph speculates on future developments. The essay is followed by the selected Architectural Design articles. Those from Frontiers: Artists and Architects (July/August 1997) investigate the dynamic relationship between art and architecture: those from Pop Architecture (July/August 1992) and Colour in Architecture (March/April 1996) discuss the formal definition of elements common to the vocabulary of artist and architect, such as the use of colour and the conception of sculptural forms: and those from Tracing Architecture (March/April 1998) examine the creative act of artists and architects.
