Introduction

Architecture and art are like twins, appearing in the history of human civilization, and they complement each other to create a desired expression. And this kind of symbiotic relationship between them is the original intention as well as the focus of this book ‘Wall Elements: Art Wall’.

Following the hot-selling book Wall Elements: Pixel Wall, this second book Art Wall will rock the market. The book is classified according to different architectural design skills, such as hollow out, louver, bionics, fold, collage, and rust, thoroughly and systematically introducing the latest and most creative architecture projects throughout the world. In these projects, the creative imagination of the art and the scientific and practical spirit of the engineers are perfectly combined under the architects’ design. They endow the architecture with life and soul through the alchemy of art. And with new industry and information technology, their architectural ideal can be more easily realized.

Wandering in the architectural space, the reader will find that architectures are no longer cold industrial products. They are humane, even can communicate with us. Thus, architecture can not only meet the people’s functional demands of specific space, but also provide art inhabitation for the soul of the residence, which can be called ‘aimless purposiveness’. Adhering to the good quality of its predecessor Pixel Wall, this book will show the beauty of art and the wisdom of science. It will become a new favorite for the architectural practitioners, as well as the enthusiasts of architecture and art.
