bernard_tschumi.jpgArchitect and lead designer for the BLUE Residential Tower, Bernard Tschumi studied in Paris and at the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, from which he received his degree in 1969. First known as a theorist, he began his teaching career at the Architectural Association in London (1970-79) and continued it at the Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in New York (1976), Princeton University (1976 and 1980) and The Cooper Union
(1981-83). He first became known for his conceptual work, most notably the exhibition and publication The Manhattan Transcripts (1981). In 1983, he won the prestigious competition to design the Parc de la Villette, a 125-acre public park containing dramatic buildings, walkways, bridges and gardens, located at the northeast edge of Paris. He established his Paris office in 1983 and his main office in New York in 1988.

tschumi_acropolis_04.jpg The historic masterpieces of the New Acropolis Museum—including the archaeological remains of ancient Athens left visible beneath the building and portions of the Parthenon frieze installed at the top— will be displayed in total for the first time when the Museum celebrates its much-anticipated official opening on Saturday, June 20, 2009.

Designed by Bernard Tschumi Architects of New York/Paris with Michael Photiadis of Athens as local associate architect, the Museum has presented a number of temporary exhibitions in a lower-floor gallery over the past year. With the official opening, visitors will at last view the full suite of galleries, presented in a dramatic architectural experience designed explicitly for this collection.
