PRINCIPLES OF ANARCHITECTURE 2

In the inherently endless scenario model of Einstein’s Universe, truth is ever approaching a catalogue of alternate transformative options of ever more inclusive and refining degrees, wherefore the metaphysical might continually improve the scenario by conceptual discoveries of new generalised principles.
-– Buckminster Fuller, Synergetics:
Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking (1975)

We need a programme of psychosurgery for political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind.
– José Delgado, Physical Control of the Mind:
Toward a Psychocivilised Society (1971)

For space science, like nuclear science & all technology,
has no conscience of its own…
– JFK, “We choose to go to the Moon!” (1961)

41. ARCHITECTURE BEGINS WITH THE CREATION OF A POLICE FORCE

Utopia has “nothing to hide.”

42. THE INTERIOR ISN’T EQUIVALENT TO WHAT IT CONTAINS

(Blackbox singularity.)

43. FORM IS THE ALIENATION OF STRUCTURE

(There is no “organic relation.”)

! Form is the Alienation of Structure SMALL

44. CITY WITHOUT WALLS = INCARCERATION BY OTHER MEANS

45. A UNIFIED ARCHITECTURAL THEORY OF FORCE

Strong, Weak, Electromagnetic, Gravitational.
(All matter is relative.)

46. PLAY ≠ WORK-IN-PROTOTYPE

Wage-labour isn’t a pretence to art.

47. TO BUILD: AN INTRANSITIVE VERB

D.I.Y. mutable urbanism.

“Anarchitecture: idées pour un ville aujourd’hui,” Manfred Schiedhelm (1969)

48. PROBABILITY EXTRUDES INTO FORM

Distribution as “identical processes producing different outcomes.”

! Toujours les memes choses SMALL

49. DEPROGRAMMING THE ROTE STATEMENT OF THEME & VARIATION

(Another black day in another black year.)

50. EVERY CONSTRUCTION IS A THROW OF DICE

Illustrated histories of indeterminacy.

51. BUILDING AS TIME-SPACE RESONANCE

The poetics of quantum states as social determinate?

52. CONSTRUCTION PROCEEDS FROM CONVERGENCE OF CAPITAL ACCRUED INTO A CRITICAL MASS

“Manhattanism is the one urbanistic ideology that has fed, from its conception, on the splendors & miseries of the metropolitan condition – hyper-density – without once losing faith in it as the basis for a desirable modern culture. Manhattan’s architecture is a paradigm for the exploitation of congestion.” – Rem Koolhaas, Delirious New York (1994)

53. LIFE: (ON) THE ARCHITECTURAL MARGIN

Enzyme conurbations.

54. FUNCTIONAL IS AS FUNCTIONAL DOES

The permitted square peg in the permitted square hole.

55. ARCHITECTURE IS THE HORIZON, GRID & PERSPECTIVE LINES BLOTTING OUT THE VIEW OF NO-END-IN-SIGHT

The human social form of capitalist social content.

! The Human Social Form of Capitalist Social Content SMALL

56. IDEOLOGY IS REIFICATION IN PRE-CODED “GEOMETRIES
OF THOUGHT”

(Tidal planes hidden in the medium of force.)

57. POLYHEDRONS OF ALL SCRIPTURE

Illusion, stripped of its mystery, is a blank wall.

58. ALIENATION PULLED FROM THE BACKGROUND OF EVERYDAY LIFE INTO THE FULL WIDTH & DEPTH OF THE IMAGE

Towards an architecture of the unpresentable.

59. FORM IS CONTINGENCY

A nervous system evolves a body.

60. SYNTAX ACCUMULATES INTO A GRAMMAR

The Real is a system of abstract control ordained in the imaginary.

61. XENOARCHITECTONICS

“Alien” elements maintained in dynamic equilibrium.

62. “MACHINES À HABITER”

Technology is alien life.

! THE INDIVIDUAL IS NEVER AUTONOMOUS, BUT BOUND TO A SYSTEM OF DOMINATION AND POWER small

63. EVOLUTIONARY MACHINES

Hive aesthetics for new siliconised lifeforms (server farms, smart cities).

“Today the human race is a single twig on the tree of life, a single species on a single planet. Our condition can thus only be described as extremely fragile, endangered by forces of nature currently beyond our control, our own mistakes, & other branches of the wildly blossoming tree itself. Looked at this way, we can then pose the question of the future of humanity on Earth, in the solar system, & in the galaxy from the standpoint of both evolutionary biology & human nature. The conclusion is straightforward: Our choice is to grow, branch, spread & develop, or stagnate & die.” – Robert Zubrin, Entering Space (1999)

64. TERRAFORMING

A hole suspended in a void.

65. THE ARCHISPHERE

Planetary geodesics of a fully-integrated system of “artificial life.”

66. THERE IS NO BINARY OPPOSITION

Spatial relations are a variable force-field.

67. PERTURBATIONS OF THE IMAGINARY PRODUCE REAL CATASTROPHES

Panopticism is symbolic self-enucleation.

(Architecture as “ophthalmic psychosis.”)

68. BIOTECHNOLOGY IS URBANISM’S FEMME FATALE

Amniosacs for “social” preconditioning.

! Evolution has no master SMALL
