Rachel Whiteread transforms negative spaces into positive forms, creates reliefs from architectural elements and in this way transforms the surrounding architecture into works of art. This book contains a rich selection of illustrations from the four groups of works "stairs", "rooms", "floors" and "doors", which are shown at the Kunsthaus Bregenz, as well as four essays by internationally known authors. Whiteread's involvement with Peter Zumthor's museum architecture - clearly recognizable in her installations - is evidenced by excellent photographs by Nic Tenwiggenborn, and Walter Nikkel's graphic design emphasizes the rigor and minimalism of her work.
