Architecture/Astrology by Dan Grahamm, Jessica Russell & Meiko Meguro
Published by Koenig Books (2014)
Dan Graham and Jessica Russell’s playful yet thorough Architecture/Astrology considers some of the most important and innovative figures in the world of architecture from an angle few would expect: their star signs. Originally published as a column for Domus magazine, Graham and Russell’s book integrates critical analysis with astrology and mythology to offer alternative perspectives on the work and personalities of artist/architects including Frank Gehry (a restless, dreamy Pisces), Eero Saarinen (a dynamic, dramatic Leo) and Le Corbusier (a logical, balanced Libra). With accompanying illustrations by Mieko Meguro, Architecture/Astrology resembles the best sort of architect, one who is at once rigorous and whimsical, with his feet on the ground and his head in the clouds.
