Superfolding: The Accelerationist Nature of Cultural Evolution

Andrej Radman

The paper will argue that it is time for the discipline of architecture to awaken from the slumber of anthropocentrism and shake off the baggage of nature/nurture dichotomies. It will propose that we drop anthropomorphism for geomorphism and reconfigure ethology to become a theory of capacity. Rather than localising it in individuals, behaviour is to  be treated epigenetically as a function of co...

The Time of the Encounter

Zsuzsa Baross

Of the three principal modalities for the creation of the new—the dark precursor (“so is the world born” [Deleuze]), the contemporary (a counter move against the forces of the present [Baross]), and the encounter as a becoming [Deleuze])—two, we know, correspond with distinct, discontinuous and heterogeneous, temporalities. The first passes in reverse, against the progression of time; in t...
