Bernard Tschumi Retrospective Exhibition
Bernard Tschumi Retrospective Opens at the Swiss Architecture Museum in Basel
May 18, 2015 – Bernard Tschumi. Architecture: Concept and Notation, the first European retrospective exhibition of the work of architect, educator, and theorist Bernard Tschumi, is now on view at the Swiss Architecture Museum in Basel, Switzerland through August 23, 2015.
The exhibition opened with a special preview on Friday, May 8 and a conversation between Tschumi and Basel-based architect Jacques Herzog on Monday, May 11.
The Basel showing, directed by Hubertus Adam, is an edited version of the larger exhibition of the same name organized by the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, France in 2014 under co-directors Frédéric Migayrou and Aurélien Lemonier.
Bernard Tschumi. Architecture: Concept and Notation addresses the architect’s thought and work through five themes, starting with such seminal theoretical work as The Manhattan Transcripts (1976-81), currently in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and extending through recent built projects like The Acropolis Museum (2009) in Athens, Greece; the Headquarters and Manufacturing Center of Vacheron Constantin (2004) in Geneva, Switzerland; and the architecture of the redesign of the Paris Zoolological Park (2014).
Bernard Tschumi Architects gratefully acknowledges the support of Pro Helvetia, Karl Bubenhofer AG, and the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts for the Basel showing of the exhibition.
