Bernard Cache Ehem. Research Fellow

Bernard Cache


Bernard Cache is an independent theorist and architect based in Paris and developed the concept of 'non-standard architecture' in his book Earth Moves. This concept was given the name 'Objectile' by Gilles Deleuze in his book on Leibniz, The Fold. Bernard Cache founded the company Objectile together with his partner Patrick Beaucé in 1996 to conceive and manufacture non-standard architecture components. His current research is focused on the reading of classical texts (such as Vitruvius’ De Architectura, or Dürer’s Underweysung der Messung) with the help of CAD/CAM software. Cache holds an Architect EPFL and a PhD in Architecture Theory and he taught at several universities and institutions worldwide, most recently as a Visiting Associate Professor at Cornell University. His numerous publications include Earth Moves: The Furnishing of Territories (MIT Press, 1995) and Projectiles (AA Publications, 2011).
