CUBISM AND ARCHITECTURE:
It forms an important link between early 20th century art and architecture.
Most of the connections are made by reference to shared formal characteristics.
Architectural interest in cubism centred on the dissolution and reconstitution of a 3 dimensional form, using simple geometrical shapes.
Diverse elements could be super imposed, made transparent or penetrate one another.
Cubism had become an influential factor in the development of modern architecture from 1912.
It led to simplification of
building design, the use of
materials appropriate to
industrial production and
the increased use of glass.
