  • Bernard TSCHUMI, Architecture Concepts: Red is Not a Color.

    An autobiographical look at the work of a seminal modernist architect. This is the first comprehensive treatment of the architecture of Bernard Tschumi. Part monograph, part architectural theory, and part story, the book narrates a three-decade journey through a personal history of architecture and architectural ideas, intertwining theory, practice, and hypothetical projects with forty built works. From Tschumi’s many written works, such as Architecture and Disjunction and The Manhattan Transcripts to such renowned projects as the Parc de la Villette in Paris. . . .

  • Ruins of Modernity
    new york NEW YORK

    “Let us not deceive ourselves,” Victor Hugo once advised, in his iconic Hunchback of Notre Dame. “Architecture is dead, and will never come to life again; it is destroyed by the power of the printed book.” Both as a discipline and a profession, architecture lagged behind the other applied arts. Even when measures toward modernization were finally instituted, many of the most innovative, technically reproducible designs were hived off from the realm of architecture proper as mere works of “engineering.”

  • the state of architecture at the beginning of the 21st century

    before bernard TSCHUMI stepped down as dean of the gsapp, he held a conference in new york inviting forty architects and theorists to take on the state of architectural practice at the start of the 21st century. the essays, conversations, and manifestos revolved around categories such as form, aesthetics, politics, detail, electronics, and material. the book features forty essays including peter eisenman’s the affects of disaster, sylvia lavin’s how architecture stopped being the 97 pound weakling and became cool, jeff kipnis’s form’s second coming, sanford kwinter’s four arguments for the elimination of architecture (long live architecture), and others by lars spuybroek, greg lynn, hani rashid, mark wigley, terrence riley, karl chu, zaha hadid, thom mayne.

  • architecture and disjunction

    mit PRESS: architecture and disjunction, which brings together TSCHUMI’S essays from 1975 to 1990, is a lucid and provocative analysis of many of the key issues that have engaged architectural discourse over the past two decades — from deconstructive theory to recent concerns with the notions of event and program.
