Bernard Tschumi, FAIA, has long documented his philosophy along with his architecture, from the four-part Event-Cities (The MIT Press, 1994–2010) to Architecture and Disjunction (The MIT Press, 1996). Now, Tschumi has compiled his philosophy from over three decades into one volume in Bernard Tschumi, Architecture Concepts: Red is Not a Color. But while philosophy is central to Tschumi's work, one can't forget about the practice: Forty of his works make appearances alonside the text, including the Parc de la Villette in Paris, a high-rise in Manhattan, and the Acropolis Museum in Athens. In his own words: "While a rigorous theoretical argument was developed over a period of years, theory is rarely the starting point of a project. It is rather the general framework." • $85; Rizzoli New York, October 2012
