Praise

 “A worldview expansive enough to see dominant tendencies in contemporary architecture and (fairly) recent art as flipsides of the same coin … criticism with vaulting ambitions.” Art Review
“I find it refreshing to encounter a degree of intellectual rigour you don’t find too often on my side of the fence.” Rowan Moore, Observer

“Brimming with ideas and analysis.” Library Journal

“Prepares the ground for a wide-ranging and nuanced discussion of the contemporary links between artistic and architectural practice.” 
Stephen Walker, Times Higher Education

“A timely tome with an urgent message.” Time Out
“Foster is terrific at unearthing the unintended consequences of our consumer-oriented culture on architectural/artistic ideas, in particular on those architects who imagine their work as critiques of consumerism.”
JM Cava, Arcade

The Art-Architecture Complex is a persistently insightful, elliptical account of an ambiguous symbiosis.” Owen Hatherley, Building Design
