Examining Kapoor's architectural and engineering projects Anish Kapoor in Architecture is the first publication dedicated to this body of the artist's work. In his Architectural work, as in his Sculpture, Kapoor examines notions of place and non-place, of space and nonspace whilst attempting to find new space. This publication spans over twenty years of the artist's architectural career and features internationally acclaimed works such as Marsyas at Tate Modern, London 2002 and Cloud Gate, Chicago 2004, as well as unrealised works and works in progress, such as the eagerly awaited subway stations for the city of Naples. A comprehensive survey of over forty projects illustrated with initial sketches, drawings and architectural renderings, this is a rare insight into the inner workings of a collaborative process. Anish Kapoor was born in Bombay in 1954. He has lived and worked in London since the early 1970s, rising quickly to prominence in the 1980s. Today, Kapoor is widely regarded as one of the foremost sculptors of his generation. Representing Britain at the Venice Biennale in 1990, Kapoor was awarded the Premio Duemila Prize. In 1991 Kapoor was awarded the Turner Prize.
