This book explores the evolution of the Kramlich Residence, a home for American art collectors Richard and Pamela Kramlich and dedicated space for their pioneering collection of media art, located in the beautiful landscape of the Napa Valley, California. Designed by Swiss architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, the unique character of the Kramlich Residence developed from a laboratory of ideas by the architects, and since completion off ers artists and artworks a rare creative opportunity to respond to this dedicated home for media art. Featuring essays and conversations with historians, curators, architects and collectors, and new artist commissions, each contribution in the book draws on distinct experiences of the project, exploring how new ways of viewing and refl ection emerge from the intersections between architecture, nature, moving images, sound, and spaces to live and gather.
