  1. ARCHITECTURE AS ART
    Architecture as Sculpture:
    Gugghenheim Museum, it has modernised the city, from an industrial city (Bilbao) to a modern cuktural city.

    Architecture as Painting:
    Increase the personality, not only of the city, town, but also, the personality of the citizen. It is a creative world, typical of the painting.

    Architecture as Tradition:
    Was worried about the evolution of art. Tradition was dissapearing because the modern ones. He decided to design buildings similar to old ones. How drawing can make possible the reflexion?
    People thwt live there are very happy. Probably happier than in a skyscrapper.

    2. ARCHITECTURE FROM OTHER ARTS
    Architecture recieves influence from many other parts:

    Architecture from Neoplasticism:
    Surfaces of colours (yellow, blue, red, blanck and white).
    Seems not to be a building, a plastic composition.
    elements like planes, lines, but not volume.

    Architecture from Purism
    Le Corbusier
    Simple forms with no perspective
    Clear and flat colours. Not Volume
    Elements are easy to recognise

    Architecture from Cubism
    :
    Typical of Prague
    Fractured and irregular shapes (Geometrically cut parapets and cornices)
    Angular details on doors and windows
    Undecorated exterior walls

    • Architecture from Surrealism:

    We recognise elements but we dont understand the composition.
    Endless House: A house that has not form.
    Outside is like a cloth but inside is like a cave.
    In architecture, Surrealism is more difficult to apply as is not cheap.
    Surrealism is like a dream.
