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.

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.

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

They hang between reality and fantasy. Tschumi uses the transcripts to make sense of an architectural reality that incorporates sequences, movement and functionality. He focuses on using different mediums that portray different events and functions of a space, assessing unconventional strategies that occur in-between the standard conclusions of architectural survey. The non-coincedence between meaning and being, movement and space, man and object is the starting condition of the work. Manhattan is a real place; the actions described are real actions.
