￼Since the mid-’90s, architecture has accelerated its move away from the discourse of the architectural object towards the discourse of the architectural field. The vicissitudes of the architectural object has lost its uncanny appeal, and recent work is more often than not circumscribed by the mental image of an underlying network of relations that is deep, dynamic, and more real than the architectural object itself. Like Janus, the transition from object to field has had many faces but has shared a single body moving towards the virtual. This lecture offers reasons for pause in this move toward relationism. . . .
