Under the theme “Space and event,” Bernard Tschumi discusses his early publications Advertisements for Architecture (1977) and The Manhattan Transcripts (1981), and the early follies that led to the project for La Vilette (1982-98). He discusses his projects for the Tokyo Opera House (1986) and Kansai Airport (1988) and Le Fresnoy Art Center (1997) in terms of “Program and Juxtaposition.” Tschumi describes the advent of digital design in conjunction with the theme “Vectors and envelopes,” including projects such as the Rouen Concert Hall (2001) and the Vacheron Constantin Headquarters (2005).

Benjamin Farnsworth Design Of Theory Fellowship Lecture

October 20, 2014 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Benjamin Farnsworth, who with Stefano Passeri was the 2013-4 Design of Theory Fellow at SCI-Arc, reviews their re-launch of Offramp, and their seminar mapping trends in contemporary architecture. In a talk titled “Non non-narrative,” Farnsworth argues for an “exquisitely failed architecture” by the “architect manqué,” illustrated by a skit by comedian George Carl interpreted according to the categories of H. Paul Grice. Farnsworth outlines his work from his 2013 M.Arch thesis, through seminars and design studios taught at Woodbury and Syracuse.
