Since antiquity, painting and sculpture were in synthesis with the architecture. The obvious interaction between these arts created different combinations: sometimes it was possible to observe a harmonious transition of one into another, although there were cases of complete absorption.
In modern architecture, we will not see open examples of the combination of these arts. But this does not mean that they no longer come into contact. Perhaps we will no longer see sculptured facades or painted interiors, but only by the fact that the relationship between these arts reached a whole new level. Higher and refined level.
Modern buildings in themselves are works of art. The modern architect works as a sculptor only on a larger scale. New materials give him freedom, untying his hands and he looks for shape, works with textures, carries out experiments.
As for the fine arts, we see a completely different picture: interiors of the museums of the 21st century brazenly entice viewers who come to enjoy the masterpieces of painting. They are self-sufficient and cause no less interest than exhibits.
Architecture began to speak independently without intermediaries in the form of a sculptural and scenic decoration. Undoubtedly, it had previously made contact with the audience, but now we have reached a level of dialogue.
Although it is worth noting that we can still meet examples of classical synthesis in modern interpretation. Prosta Tower by Kuryłowicz&Associates (2011). The lattice facade of the building is augmented with sculptures.
And what do you think about interaction of different kinds of art?
