Object Oriented Architecture

Abstract :

Object Oriented Ontology is a new branch of continental philosophy called "speculative realism". Founded at the turn of the century by Graham Harman, it is now being embraced by West Coast American architects, with Harman himself based at SCI-Arc. 
Through the work of Tom Wiscombe, David Ruy or even Mark Foster Gage, this article aims to explain the philosophical principles of OOO and to present their contemporary architectural applications. In a second phase, we will look at how object-oriented architecture can get out of the parametric deliriums that characterize it today to find a new scale of use that is more realistic and buildable in order to become a credible alternative to the architecture of the Deleuzian becoming that seems to be unanimously accepted today.
