Between Art and Architecture : A comparative study of Frank Gehry's and Olafur Eliasson's artistry (English)
Abstract [en]

In this thesis I am studying the phenomenon of contemporary architecture evolving into art and, similarly, how contemporary art seems to evolve towards architecture. The aim of the study is to examine the blurred line between art and architecture that is significant for our century. Besides overall attempting to explain the relation of art and architecture in past, present and prospective, the particular method in my investigation is a comparative study of two main examples. One of these is in the field of artistic architecture (Frank Gehry’s Fondation Louis Vuitton), followed by one from the field of architectural art (Olafur Eliasson’s Inside the Horizon). By using text- and image-based analysis, I am pointing out both similarities and differences in the examples to determine if and where the fading line still appears. By aiming to understand the phenomenon from several viewpoints, I have been able to conclude that the fusion of art and architecture in most cases is a sign of intrinsic artistic progression. Yet the Art-Architecture Complex as an ongoing event seems to be subject to an infinite debate.
