Understanding Places and the City


This article is about Bernard Tschumi and his views about architecture. Tschumi is interested is building a project in his own image. He understands about space and people in a place. He is half Swiss and French. Bernard talks about the property which he refers to as the envelope. The envelope is being built so that people feel comfortable in their space.                         He is also interested in a theater type setting. Movement is very important when it comes to space. He wants people to understand about a place where they can go to enjoy themselves in that place. He also wants how people perform in certain place. The moving of bodies has to do with space and time. He sees people in a camera which shows their movements, without doing this you cannot what other have done in the past in a space. Architecture is a container where bodies and thing move back forth and people see it. With his architectural work he likes to interact with the bodies and space. Computer program is needed to do architecture program. The building has to look a certain way before a performance, such as where people should be placed.                                                                                                                      He is comparing writing and actually physically seeing how different people seeing how different the people are. Physically seeing you can get actual picture of what he is talking about. He want the building a specific look. He wants to make his own decision instead of using other people decisions.                                                                                                                                   He is comparing Athens and Beijing in the way they create their buildings. The chinses wants their building to be brand new and Greeks wants to keep the ruins and renovate them             Tschumi compares the envelope of the property different materials that the building are made of.                                                                                                                                                      He doesn’t need to depend on colleagues to do his work for him. He has his own vision of things the way should be built
