Ezra Pound wrote that all great art is born from the metropolis, so it’s no surprise that the metropolis itself has become one of art’s primary motifs. The city has been depicted in ancient Greek and Roman frescoes, late Gothic religious paintings, and Edo-period Japanese prints. In the 20th century, artists like Fernand Leger, Robert Rauschenberg and Ed Ruscha paid it tribute.
Moritzburg Castle Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos
"The architectural proposal emerged from an intuition that marks every posterior decision: a new roof conceived as a large, folded platform, which rises and folds to emit natural light, and from which two new exhibition spaces hang. This operation frees up the western wing from the presence of the old ruin, which allows for the re-creation of a unique large-scale space, column-free, and offering different exhibition opportunities. A new roof landscape—clad in rigid aluminum panels—establishes a dialogue between its angular geometry and the irregular volumes of the sloping roofs of the castle. The pyramidal skylights, positive and negative, express through their variations that architecture is a combinatorial art; that our task, in the end, is to find the relative position of its elements. The new intervention in the Moritzburg Castle aims at protecting the ruins that have represented it for centuries. It does so by keeping the existing building intact, and superimposing a light structure that evokes the works displayed inside."
