Ark Journal Volume VII
A PAST-PRESENT DIALOGUE
— The new and the old in architecture, design and art
Ark Journal Volume VII explores the interaction of architecture,
design and art over time, and looks at history as a constant source of
inspiration for creating new ideas.
It presents detailed examinations of architecture from some of the greatest masters, including an early building by Frank O. Gehry and a modest Marcel Breuer house that is not only a home but, for the most recent owners, also a long-standing lesson in how to live well. The Belgian architect Glenn Sestig discreetly transforms a radical concrete masterpiece by Ivan Van Mossevelde, while collector and designer Frederick Hooft simply leaves an avant-garde 1960s villa largely as he found it.
