Expanded Architecture - Temporal Spatial Practices is a new publication devoted to Australian icons of modernism by renowned architect Harry Seidler, casting current artistic perspectives on Bauhaus ideas and its advocates.
Book chapters are shaped by discussion of site-specific works and essays exploring diverse notions of an expanded architecture through artistic experimentation, public participation and interdisciplinary scholarly discourse contextualized in three high-rise buildings in Sydney’s central business district designed by Harry Seidler, who studied under Walter Gropius at Harvard University.
Following the Bauhaus tradition, Seidler is also well known for his extensive collaborations with such artists as Josef Albers, Alexander Calder, Sol LeWitt, Frank Stella and Lin Utzon, relationships that are a backdrop to this project.
