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.

Bernard Tschumi Part One

January 1, 1978 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Shelly Kappe introduces part one of Bernard Tschumi’s two part lecture. Tschumi discusses the definition of space, the methods attempted in the past to understand it, and contemporary attempts to shape an understanding. He focuses on what he describes as the “paradox of architecture.” He describes the conceptual and material tools of architecture as mutually exclusive and interdependent within the discipline. Tschumi describes some of his work, student work from the Architecture Association as well as that of Los Angeles artists with whom he identifies.
