This catalogue is published to coincide with the exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour lart contemporain of the work of the influential Italian architect and designer Andrea Branzi. Former member of the legendary radical architecture group Archizoom and founding father of the Domus Academy in Milan, Andrea Branzi has created two large-scale installations specifically for the spaces of the Fondation Cartier. Weaving together materials such as hemp and bamboo with glass and metal, the artist has created fragile, delicate and poetic architectural structures that reconcile the natural with the manmade.
