Bernard Tschumi is a Swiss architect. He was born in Lausanne, Switzerland on January 25, 1944. He is a swiss architect, writer and academic. One of his major works and accomplishment is the Parc De La Villette in Paris.
Tschumi's theory is that architecture's role is not to express an extant social structure, but to function as a tool for questioning that structure and revising it. He combines film and literary theory with architecture. His designs are more modern and geometrical. His designs are based off more of ahpes with definite sides. He doesn't do much with round shapes but he focuses more on fundamentals of squares and triangles etc.
