Tschumi discusses methods of understanding space through the history of architecture. He describes the transition from amorphous space to a rigidly defined spatiality through a language of archetypal forms and organizations. He partially rejects this by advocating the notion that architecture can be many different things at the same time. Tschumi goes on to discuss the social movements in art and architecture in the 1960s that challenged the systems in place by expanding the role of architecture and by attempting to shift design away from commodification.
