    Abstract

    Book synopsis: Potential Architecture explores artists Lucy + Jorge Orta’s recent architectural endeavours that derive from their fascination with cell biology and the process of differentiation. Through drawings and sculpture, the artists conceptualize the communication process the human cell undertakes from its embryonic state, and the infinite transformations that lead to defined structural organisms. This new body of work draws from Lucy + Jorge Orta’s artistic practice, grounded in the universal concerns of community, shelter, migration and sustainable development. Potential Architecture is a powerful rejoinder to the arbitrary boundaries that define art, architecture and design.
