In broad terms, contemporary architecture can be defined as the architecture of our days. There are people that say that contemporary art is art produced in “our lifetime”, accepting that life spans vary. With a public that does not consider art and its institutions share the values of contemporary art, this can seem at odds sometimes. This type of art became part of the popular culture in the 1990’s in Britain, which is why artists became stars, but this did not run for the “cultural utopia” everyone hoped-for. According to Donald Kuspit and Julian Spalding rejection and skepticism are reasonable, legitimate response to part of the contemporary art. Another interesting opinion about contemporary art is belonging to Brian Ashbee in his essay “Art Bollocks”, saying that conceptual art and practices generally called post-modern are being too dependent on theoretical discourse with verbal explanations.
This being said, we would like to share with you an contemporary architecture signed by UK-based 3D artist Chris LaBrooy, which consists of structures in the shape of several sneakers. A mash up rendered in concrete, steel, wood and glass.
