Bernard Tschumi: Totally generic (October 6, 2010)01:47:14

Although he is well known as a theorist, for Bernard Tschumi, “theory does not precede practice any more than practice precedes theory.” He identifies five themes in his work: movement, juxtaposition, vectors, concept, and context. Tschumi discusses many projects, including Parc de la Villette, the Glass Video Gallery in Groningen, the Rouen Concert Hall and Exhibition Complex, the Limoges Concert Hall, the Vacheron Constantin Headquarters, and the School of Architecture, Florida International University, the Blue Residential Tower in New York, the University of Cincinnati Athletics Center, Elliptic City IFCA in Santo Domingo, Alésia Museum and Archaeological Park in Burgundy, Carnal Dome in Switzerland, the La Roche-sur-Yon bridge, Factory 798 in Bejing, and the Acropolis Museum in Athens.
