This week I’m giving away a classic from my library: Bernard Tschumi’s Architecture and Disjunction, a collection of thirteen essays written between 1975 and 1991. This is the paperback version (I also have the hardcover, which is staying in my library). If you’re interested in winning this book, just reply to this newsletter indicating so; I’ll select a winner randomly next week.
