Donald Judd (1928-1994) was one of the most important exponents of American Minimal Art. Among the lesser known aspects of his work are numerous architectural drawings in which he explores the relationship between architecture and art. One particular location was of great significance to Judds’s architectural work: Fort Russell, an abandoned US military base in the desert near the town of Maria, Texas. Judd bought parts of the base and systematically converted this space into one of the largest ensemble collections of contemporary art in the world.

This book updates and expands on the successful Donald Judd, Architecture in Marfa, Texas (2007).This new edition presents two additional building complexes in Maria and includes a new epilogue by the author, which places Judd’s architectural work in a contemporary context.
