Spike Island

Audio: Alex Coles

Last month Alex Coles, author of the 2012 book The Transdisciplinary Studio, visited Spike Island to discuss practices at the junction of art, design and architecture with our director Helen Legg.

In researching the book, Coles spent time in the studios of Jorge Pardo, Olafur Eliasson, Konstantin Grcic and Åbäke, and here he shares anecdotes and insights from these visits, as well as his thoughts on business models in art and the impact of space and location on practitioners’ output.
