Brooke Berger, our other artist in Foster Gallery who is showing with Anna Yeroshenko, also sites an artist who wrestled with architecture as an influence on her work.  Gordon Matta-Clark, who worked primarily during the 1970s, created work that straddled architecture, photography, performance, and intervention.  He often used abandoned buildings as his raw material, cutting them open and exposing the under structure.  In his short life, he challenged the architecture establishment and enlarged the scope of the Earth Art movement.  The Guggenheim Museum has an introductory page where you can learn more about him here.
