Gordon Matta-Clark (1943–1978), who trained originally as an architect, is best known for his spectacular ‘building cuts’. He single-handedly established a new genre of environmental art, in which he used abandoned buildings as raw material and radically transformed them into stunning found sculptures. Seen as an outright rejection of the architectural profession, Matta-Clark’s work conveys a potent critique of architecture's role vis-à-vis the capitalist system.
