An excerpt from Bertrand Tschumi’s series entitled Advertisements for Architecture 1976-77. It was 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.
