Donald Judd was one of the most important exponents of American Minimal Art. Among the lesser-known aspects of his work are the numerous built architectural projects in which he explores the relationship between architecture art, furniture, and landscape. One particular location was of great significance to Judd's architectural work: Fort D.R. Russell, a former US military base in the Chihuahuan desert on the southern edge of the pioneer town of Marfa, Texas. Judd acquired the fort and other structures in Marfa which he systematically converted 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 southwest of Marfa and includes a new epilogue by the author, which places Judd's built architectural work from its beginning at 101 Spring Street, Judd's studio and residence in New York and the structures in Marfa in a contemporary context.
