U.8 Architecture as art

Architecture can be considered an art form because it involves the use of creative design, aesthetics, and spatial composition to produce built environments. Architects use their artistic skills and vision to create buildings that are not only functional, but also visually appealing, unique and memorable. The art of architecture can be seen in the harmony between form and function, the manipulation of light, the use of materials and textures, and the creation of spaces that evoke emotions and enhance the human experience.


Artistic architecture refers to buildings that prioritize aesthetics and design over just functionality. This type of architecture is often known for its unique form, use of color, texture, materials, and incorporation of art and creative elements. It can range from minimalist to whimsical designs, and can serve as both a functional structure and a work of art. Examples of artistic architecture include Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain


Cubism ( the most interesting for me )

The architecture style that uses cubes as a fundamental design element is called Cubism. The Cubist style is characterized by geometric shapes, particularly cubes, which are fragmented and reassembled to create a new form. This style was popularized in the early 20th century by artists such as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque and has since been applied to architecture and design.

In the practice number 6, you can see the relation between cubism, architecture and the CINEMA.
