Architect and educator Bernard Tschumi is one of the most influential figures in architectural theory and practice. This fascinating volume presents, in a sequence of ten “conversations,” his autobiography in architecture, from his conceptual proposals 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. The conversations offer a clear-eyed analysis of Tschumi’s work, suggesting the interwoven relationship between the strategies of each individual design and the formation of the architect’s overarching theoretical project. Among the major works of architecture investigated are Parc de la Villette in Paris; Le Fresnoy National Studio for Contemporary Arts in Tourcoing, France; and the New Acropolis Museum in Athens. Also included are Tschumi's conceptual works and writings such as The Manhattan Transcripts and Architecture and Disjunction.
