Summary Over the last twenty-five years, Melvin Charney has produced a demanding and rhetorically complex body of work that lies on the cutting edgy between art and architecture. His site-related installations, drawings, collages, and texts have raised questions and stimulated discussion on such topics as the nature of the city and the connections between the built environment and the world of ideas.
