Bernard Tschumi is an architect based in New York and Paris. First known as a theorist, he exhibited and published The Manhattan Transcripts and wrote Architecture and Disjunction, a series of theoretical essays. Major built works include the Parc de la Villette, the Acropolis Museum, Le Fresnoy Center for the Contemporary Arts, MuséoParc Alésia, the Paris Zoo, the Binhai Science Museum, and a large educational complex for the University of Paris-Saclay opening in 2023. He was the Dean of the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation of Columbia University in New York from 1988-2003. The book Architecture Concepts: Red is Not a Color is a comprehensive collection of his conceptual and built projects. His drawings and models are in the collections of several major museums, including MoMA in New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, which each presented a major retrospective of his work in 1994 and 2014.
