tracing the diagrammatic approach in allan wexler’s works
Dilara Tekin | American artist and architect Allan Wexler works in the intersection of art, design and architecture. He explores ordinary human actions, daily rituals, and the built environment through his works, which he mentions as “sculpture-furniture-architecture” and “objects-buildings-vessels that dissolve the boundaries of architecture”. When looking at the way he discusses architecture, it is not surprising that the architectural diagram has positioned itself influentially in Wexler’s works. In this paper, the examples chosen among the works of the architect’s 50 years will be interpreted within the frameworks of “Settling the Earth” and “Representation”. These frameworks may be considered as semantic headlines which can create a convenient ground for discussing the diagram.
