The competition for the Parc de la Villette was decided on March 25, 1983, after two days of deliberation. Bernard Tschumi was selected by an international jury from over 470 teams from 70 countries. His winning scheme, derived from the disjunctions and dissociations of our time, proposed an urban strategy for a new type of park based on cultural invention, education, and entertainment.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary, Bernard Tschumi Architects is releasing two t-shirts featuring iconic drawings from the project. The silkscreened white shirts depict either a grid of red folie transformations or a single exploded folie. The images represent some of the park’s key concepts: combination and fragmentation.
