Bernard Tschumi Concept & Notation

November 10, 2014 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Bernard Tschumi describes how his book book Architecture Concepts (2012), prompted aproposal of a retrospective exhibition at the Pompidou, which in turn prompted a reconsideration of his work as a whole. After describing stages of the conceptualization, design and implementation of the exhibit, he reviews his work under five themes: Space and event, Program and juxtaposition, Vectors and envelopes, Context/Concept/Content, and Form/Concept.

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-clip_9592

Subclip

Benjamin Farnsworth, who with Stefano Passeri were the first Design of Theory Fellows at SCI-Arc, reviews their accomplishments during 2013-4, stressing the re-launch of the journal Offramp, and their seminar that mapped current trends within architecture. 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.
