Over the last three decades, Arakawa (Shusaku Arakawa, b. 1936) and Madeline Gins (b. 1941) have created a remarkable body of work that bridges disciplines and seeks to expand the definition of artistic practice.

Architectural body by Madeline Gins( Book )

Making dying illegal : architecture against death : original to the 21st century by Shūsaku Arakawa( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recording and documenting what it is actually like for a person to stand within a piece of architecture, this is the first systematic study of the role the body and bodily movement play in the forming of the world. Through a series of computer-generated images of great beauty and intricacy, the reader is presented with ways of reworking the man-made world that is architecture. Going further, the book suggests a revolutionary re-invention of the planet and, by extension, the universe
