PRINCIPAL AND LEAD DESIGNER, BERNARD TSCHUMI ARCHITECTS
Is architecture just about buildings? Or is it about the experience of being in space—the way things unfold in time, like a movie or a dream? Tschumi, the Swiss-born designer and theoretician, has been stumping the architectural profession for 40 years with questions like these, and with buildings that are just as challenging, such as his new Concert Hall for Rolle, Switzerland. Last year, the Centre Pompidou finally gave him his due with a full retrospective.
