BERNARD TSCHUMI EVENT CITIES PDF

Bernard Tschumi's Event-Cities presents an original selection of his most recent architectural projects, which are at the center of polemics on architecture and cities today. Tschumi has already expanded the field of contemporary architectural theory through his writings. Now, with Event-Cities, he enlarges some of his earlier concerns to address the issue of cities and their making. Event-Cities explores contemporary architecture through its confrontation with the major programs defining the edge of the twenty-first century - airports, business centers, multipurpose railroad "cities," downtown areas, and multimedia art centers, as well as video installations and domestic environments. Using different modes of notation ranging from rough models to sophisticated computer-generated images and testing various means to inscribe the movement of bodies in space, Tschumi reveals the complexities of the architectural process and the rich texture of architectural events that define the nature of urban reality. Event-Cities unfolds a new type of architectural documentation, far removed from the glossy picture books that have become the major means of presenting architectural projects - a "project discourse" that may be as extensive and precise as any theoretical or critical text.

How concept, context, and content interact in architecture; provocative examples from recent projects by Bernard Tschumi. In Event-Cities 3 , Bernard Tschumi explores the complex and productive triangulation of architectural concept, context, and content. There is no architecture without a concept, an overriding idea that gives coherence and identity to a building. But there is also no architecture without context—historical, geographical, cultural—or content what happens inside.

Concept, context, and content may be in unison or purposely discordant. Against the contextualist movement of the s and s, which called for architecture to blend in with its surroundings, Tschumi argues that buildings may or may not conform to their settings—but that the decision should always be strategic. 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.

In the new Acropolis Museum, for example, Tschumi looks at the interaction of the concept—a simple and precise museum with the clarity of ancient Greek buildings—with the context its location at the base of the Acropolis, feet from the Parthenon and the content, which incorporates archaeological excavations on the building site into the fabric of the museum.

Through provocative examples, Tschumi demonstrates that the relationship of concept, context, and content may be one of indifference, reciprocity, or conflict—all of which, he argues, are valid architectural approaches. Above all, he suggests that the activity of architecture is less about the making of forms than the investigation and materialization of concepts.
