A fundamental tenet of the historiography of modern architecture holds that cubism forged a vital link between avant-garde practices in early twentieth-century painting and architecture. This volume offers the first historically focused examination of that widely accepted but little scrutinized belief. The essays return to the original site of cubist art in pre-World War I Europe and examine the historical, theoretical, and sociopolitical relationships between avant-garde practices in painting, architecture, and other cultural forms, including poetry, landscape, and the decorative arts. They look at works produced in France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Czechoslovakia during the early decades of the twentieth century.

Together, the essays show that although there were many points of intersection between cubism and architecture, there was no simple, direct link between them. Most often the connections between cubist painting and modern architecture were construed analogically, by reference to shared formal qualities such as fragmentation, spatial ambiguity, transparency, and multiplicity; or to techniques used in other media such as film, poetry, and photomontage.
