MANHATTAN TRANSCRIPTS TSCHUMI PDF

Architecture is not simply about space and form, but also about event , action, and what happens in space. The Manhattan Transcripts differ from most architectural drawings insofar as they are neither real projects nor mere fantasies. Developed in the late '70s, they proposed to transcribe an architectural interpretation of reality. To this aim, they employed a particular structure involving photographs that either direct or "witness" event s some would call them "functions," others " program s". At the same time, plans, sections, and diagrams outline spaces and indicate the movements of the different protagonists intruding into the architectural "stage set.

Their implicit purpose had to do with the 20th-century city. The dominant theme of The Transcripts is a set of disjunctions among use, form, and social values; the non-coincidence between meaning and being, movement and space, man and object was the starting condition of the work.

Yet the inevitable confrontation of these terms produced effects of far-ranging consequence. The Transcripts aimed to offer a different reading of architecture in which space, movement and event s are independent, yet stand in a new relation to one another, so that the conventional components of architecture are broken down and rebuilt along different axes.

While the program s used for The Manhattan Transcripts are of the most extreme nature, they also parallel the most common formula plot: the archetype of murder. Other phantasms were occasionally used to underline the fact that perhaps all architecture, rather than being about functional standards, is about love and death.

By going beyond the conventional definition of use and program , The Transcripts used their tentative format to explore unlikely confrontations. Office Projects Publications News Contact.

“The Set and the Script” in Architecture: The Manhattan Transcripts (1976-1981) by Bernard Tschumi

The Manhattan Transcripts are theoretical propositions executed through drawing. Made between and for consecutive exhibitions, the four episodes transcribe imagined events in real New York locales: The Park uncovers a murder in Central Park; The Street Border Crossing chronicles the movement of a person drifting through violent and sexual events on Forty-second Street; The Tower The Fall depicts a vertiginous fall from a Manhattan skyscraper; and The Block illustrates five unlikely events occurring in separate courtyards within a city block. The event, in particular, is the figurative origin of architecture itself, through which Tschumi proposes an architecture of difference and opposition rather than synthesis and totality. Narrative techniques—be they pictorial or cinematic—evoke the ability of fiction to produce an alternative form of critique. That project has concluded, and works are now being identified by MoMA staff. If you notice an error, please contact us at digital moma.
