Bernard Tschumi

(b. 1944)

"Tschumi studied until 1969 at the Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule in Zurich. From 1970 to 1979 he taught at the Architectural Association in London, and from 1976 also at the Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in New York and at Princeton University. From 1980 to 1983 he was visiting professor at the Cooper Union School of Architecture in New York. In 1975 he organized the exhibition "A Space, a Thousand Words" in New York. From 1977 to 1981, after his move from London to New York, Tschumi produce the "Manhattan Transcripts", designs and collages in which he tackles new forms of "architectonic notation", including such ideas as "form follows fiction"."
