Object-Oriented Ontology in the Design Studio: A Dialogue Between Simon Weir and Graham Harman Across Architecture and Philosophy

Object-Oriented Ontology in the Design Studio: A Dialogue Between Simon Weir and Graham Harman... Abstract This dialogue between Simon Weir and Graham Harman took place in 2021 discussing different ontologies and their consequences in the architectural design studio. Object-oriented ontology classifies three distinct kinds of access to objects. Two are forms of knowledge called undermining and overmining, which amount to false claims of direct access. The other is allusion, an indirect form of access we find most often in esthetics. These three kinds of access offer three distinct modes of discussion and analysis of architectural objects, and two potential problems for discourse in the design studio: aestheticizing knowledge and trying to make knowledge from esthetics. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis

Abstract

Abstract This dialogue between Simon Weir and Graham Harman took place in 2021 discussing different ontologies and their consequences in the architectural design studio. Object-oriented ontology classifies three distinct kinds of access to objects. Two are forms of knowledge called undermining and overmining, which amount to false claims of direct access. The other is allusion, an indirect form of access we find most often in esthetics. These three kinds of access offer three distinct modes of discussion and analysis of architectural objects, and two potential problems for discourse in the design studio: aestheticizing knowledge and trying to make knowledge from esthetics.
