In his traversing of sculpture, furniture, painting, design and architecture, Jorge Pardo gives a practical vitality to the fusion of art and life. His pleasure in animating massive spaces can be seen in his spectacular designs for the historical turbine hall at Düsseldorf's Department of Works, the former Dia building in New York and at German Bundestag's House of Representatives in Berlin.
