Architecture and disjunction by Bernard Tschumi( Book )

34 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Avant-garde theorist and architect Bernard Tschumi is equally well known for his writing and his practice. 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.The essays develop different themes in contemporary theory as they relate to the actual making of architecture, attempting to realign the discipline with a new world culture characterized by both discontinuity and heterogeneity. Included are a number of seminal essays that incited broad attention when they first appeared in magazines and journals, as well as more recent and topical texts.Tschumi's discourse has always been considered radical and disturbing. He opposes modernist ideology and postmodern nostalgia since both impose restrictive criteria on what may be deemed "legitimate" cultural conditions. He argues for focusing on our immediate cultural situation, which is distinguished by a new postindustrial "unhomeliness" reflected in the ad hoc erection of buildings with multipurpose programs. The condition of New York and the chaos of Tokyo are thus perceived as legitimate urban forms

"Documents the extensive cross-fertilization of ideas that can occur between architectural practice and education. Through work developed by students and faculty at Columbia University's School of Architecture, it offers not only an archive of avant-garde work but a record of architectural discourse at a time when the design studio has been radically altered by digital technology.

Tschumi on architecture : conversations with Enrique Walker by Enrique Walker( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Architect and educator Bernard Tschumi, former dean of the Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, has long been one of the most influential figures in architectural theory and practice. This volume presents, in a sequence of ten "conversations," his autobiography in architecture, from his conceptual projects of the early 1970s through his major current buildings and projects." "Tschumi approaches his work as the gradual construction of an argument. The conversations, drawn from a six-year series of interviews with critic Enrique Walker, represent that argument in an analysis of Tschumi's writings, buildings, and other works. Evident in the architect's intellectual program is an interwoven relationship between the strategies of each individual project and the formation of his overarching theoretical project."--BOOK JACKET

9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through documentation of recent projects - including the New Acropolis Museum in Athens, a campus Athletic Center in Cincinnati, museums in Sao Paolo, New York, and Antwerp, concert halls in France, and a speculative urban project in Beijing - Tschumi examines different ways that concept, context, and content relate to each other in his work. Through examples, he demonstrates that the relationship of concept, context, and content may be one of indifference, reciprocity, or conflict. Above all, he suggests that the activity of architecture is less about the making of forms than the investigation and materialization of concepts."--Jacket
