Architecture is Art: Mark Dion and David Rockwell
The lines between art and architecture are further blurred when artist Mark Dion meets up with architect and designer David Rockwell (of Rockwell Group). Presented in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Dion is known for his installations that explore how we impose order into our understanding of nature and the world around us. Rockwell's designs are installations in themselves, drawing deep connections to theater and set-design. With noted architectural commentator and moderator Reed Kroloff, these two highly regarded practitioners discuss the issues and inspirations fueling their work and how they defy the disciplines of art and architecture.
