The Philadelphia Museum of Art has ten-strong Blockworks sculptures guarding the museum. Antony Gormley is the mind behind it! According to the Artist, “Like standing stones, these works are markers in space, but I would also like them to engage the viewer’s time”.
Daniel Libeskind, a Polish-American architect, has entered this 17th-century baroque garden in the Netherlands and once he did it, has transformed it into a garden full of art.

Here you can find an elegant French Hotel, surrounded by a few monumental sculptures by Anthony Cragg. The works, like the one in the image, are derived from the contours of gestural drawings.

They have come up with six towering wooden totem poles beneath the MVDVR-design Baltyk building. With the intention of protest against climate change.
