Summary

Summary

This work presents an original selection of Bernard Tschumi's most recent architectural projects, which are at the centre 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. He explores contemporary architecture through its confrontation with the major programmes defining the edge of the 21st century - airports, business centres, multipurpose railroad cities, downtown areas and multimedia art centres - as well as video installations and domestic environments.
