DONALD JUDD - Fundamental.Berlin

Donald Judd is known for his flawless sculptures:

you've seen them in any museum of modern art. To us as architects and designers, they are always slightly reminiscent of 'too perfect to be true' furniture, the shelves that you could never hang that straight or keep so free of clutter.

However, the pieces become much more interesting when examined in the context Judd's architectureal space.

Whether it's the play of crisp desert light on these aluminium boxes on display in Marfa:

or the surprisingly rough, textured finishes on show here in his studio,

his work in context is a reminder to take the rough with the smooth, and leave the perfectionism to the galleries.
