Bernard Tschumi: La Case Vide La Villette

London Architectural Association Folio VIII 1985

20 drawings + 28pp text in stapled booklet. A little faded on the spine else internally a very good copy. With an interview with Alvin Boyarsky. La Villette has been hailed as the first major piece of Deconstructivist architecture and this box concerns the follies constructed there on a grid like structure. The title means literally "The Empty House" but the formal constructs at La Villette are certainly not lacking in meaning even if they arguably were functionless. A fascinating box of images which have become iconic in their own right. Hard to find. Incidently, Tschumi's winning entry for the 1982 Parc de la Villette Competition in Paris became his first major public work.
