WALTER PICHLER: | DRAWINGS, SCULPTURE ,BUILDINGS Publisher: Princeton Architectural Press, 1997 Edition: 1st Edition Hardcover | 9.5 x 1 x 11.2 inches Language: English ISBN 10: 0910413975 DESCRIPTION: Austrian artist Walter Pichler is one of the most original and, paradoxically, least-known influences on contemporary architecture. From his 1965 exhibition with Hans Hollein to his recent exhibitions at the Hirshhorn Museum and the Museum of Modern Art. Pichler has remained a worldwide inspiration to architects as diverse as Morphosis, Arata Isozaki, Coop Himmelblau, Peter Wilson, and Neil Denari. Peter Cook writes, "The power of Pichler's drawings is undeniable [with] their oscillations between tight precision and atmospheric scribbles.... As with other Austrian art, Pichler's is highly symbolic, ritualistic, even shocking." Pichler's intensely energetic drawings form the basis of his sculptures and subsequently the architecture built to house them, blurring the distinction between art and architecture. Friedrich Achleitner's introductory essay explores Pichler's work in relation to his home in St. Martin. Walter Pichler: Drawings, Sculpture, Buildings makes known to a wider audience the beautiful and compelling work of this important European artist.
