"Thomas Schütte: Crystal" Architecture Boston
Article by Grigori Fateyev in Architecture Boston
"Crystal" by Thomas Schutte, The Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, MA
The name of this installation is an immediate explanation of its form and a clear reference to the crystalline nature of quartz found in abundance on the site. A shelter like destination among the paths of the gently rolling Berkshire Hills, Crystal comes into view after crossing a cow pasture. Approaching from below, it appears like the gabled end of a chapel. This dramatic point of view is also the least provocative in its referencing of traditional architectural language.
