From ‘Advertisements for Architecture’ (1976-77) by Bernard Tschumi.
Tschumi illustrated several of his early theoretical texts with Advertisements for Architecture, a series of postcard-sized juxtapositions of words and images. Each was a manifesto of sorts, confronting the dissociation between the immediacy of spatial experience and the analytical definition of theoretical concepts.
