I recently saw a video by American artist GordonMattaClark at the Berlin Hamburger Bahnhof Museum. It was of one of his site-specific artworks made in the 1970s of what he referred to as “Anarchitecture.” Love the energy of the phisical work he doeas and than the attention on the beauty of the final piece...
Designed by architect Jean Nouvel, the Musee du quai Branly is a beautiful architecture built next to the eiffel tower. The "living wall" (200m long by 12m tall) on part of the exterior of the museum was designed and planted by Gilles Clément and Patrick Blanc. The museum's frontage facing onto quai Branly features very tall glass paneling which allows its interior gardens to be remarkably quiet only meters from the busy street in front of them.
