  • lecture: David RUY

    David RUY
    syracuse NEW YORK

    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 towards relationism in order to reconsider the architectural object itself and why it may be irreducible to relations alone. The work of Ruy Klein is presented in the context of this concern and seeks to describe that which is withdrawn and strange about the architectural object.

      It may be, in retrospect, that Ruy Klein would be the most prescient firm of a generation. Or at least the most exquisite. At any rate, Ruy does seem to make some kind of sense of a world be-smitten with relationships of all kinds, however degenerate, clinging desperately to the notion that so long as one thing connects to another then all will be alright. But all will not be alright. For as we know in the harsh light of the real one thing turns away from another, inevitably. In my yard there is a tree that I love next to a rock that I like too, in its own way. But I have no illusions that the two have any sort of relationship.
