OOO in Architecture

This project engages notions of philosophy and architecture through the realm of ontology and materialism. Understanding the potential residing in phenomenology and applying it to innate objects such as works of architecture opens a world of speculative possibilities. I argue for entities to have no ontological privilege over one another, but rather that all things and beings exist equally. As the contemporary discourse positions our center around human concern as precluding all entity’s perception of the world, I posit that we could perceive buildings or objects as finite things in it of themselves rather than filtering our perception of things through human experience. In the acknowledgment of elevated importance to things, new materialism, re-inscribes humanist values by merely extending agency, vitality, and social phenomena to nonhuman material.
