Keith Sonnier: Public Commissions in Architecture 1990-1999

  • Comment
Kunsthaus Bregenz/Hatje Cantz Verlag, 2000. 148pp. £12. Available from Triangle Bookshop 020 7631 1381

This is the sixteenth in a very worthwhile series of compact paperback monographs issued by the Kunsthaus Bregenz. All deal with projects where the integration of art and architecture is paramount. Subjects of earlier volumes have included Herzog & de Meuron's Goetz Collection and Erwin Heerich's Museum Insel Hombroich.

The American artist Keith Sonnier, whose medium is neon or fluorescent light, says his public commissions are 'serviceable structures that try to make the urban context a more readable environment'. Among works featured in this new book are Lichtweg - a permanent installation along a 1,000m walkway at Munich Airport - and a temporary transformation of Peter Zumthor's Kunsthaus Bregenz in 1999 (right).
