Bernard Tschumi

First Major French Retrospective of Bernard Tschumi's Work

The exhibition casts a spotlight on Tschumi’s influence and work as a theorist, a cultural presence, and a builder. The scope of his approach is developed through five thematic and chronological sections devoted to the concepts of space and event; program and superimposition; vectors and envelopes; context and content; and the ‘concept form.’

These five themes are illustrated by the architect’s most iconic projects, ranging from his early theoretical project titled The Manhattan Transcripts to the Acropolis Museum in Athens, the Parc de la Villette in Paris, the National Studio for Contemporary Art (Le Fresnoy) in Tourcoing, France; the Headquarters and Manufacturing Center for Vacheron Constantin in Geneva; and projects in the United States and the Dominican Republic.
