Abstract

In relation to the affective introduction of the post-structuralist paradigm particularly the Deleuzeian discourse to the agenda of architectural theory and praxis, as well as the rising influence of digitalization and its immense penetration into even everyday life, the last decade of the 20th Century addressed to a critical threshold in the successive transformation process of the spatiality in its long-term run. So, by interacting with the Deleuzeian Philosophy and their notions like lines of forces, folding, becoming, smooth space, territory, spatium, this article aims to reveal the relevance of these notions in architectural discourse, as well as discusses the shifting perspectives of design thought and the creative practice, where architectural embodiment becomes a multitude of intensities and an open-ended production. Furthermore, this paper argues the applicability of Deleuzeian thoughts within the architectural design and the notion of space as a “becoming”, by opening up the Fresh Water Pavilion of NOX Architecture into question in terms of unfolding the essences of a transformable-evolvable architectural spatiality.

Space as a Becoming Fresh Water Expo Pavilion as a Creative Practice for an Architecture to Come

In relation to the affective introduction of the post-structuralist paradigm particularly the Deleuzeian discourse to the agenda of architectural theory and praxis, as well as the rising influence of digitalization and its immense penetration into even everyday life, the last decade of the 20th Century addressed to a critical threshold in the successive transformation process of the spatiality in its long-term run. So, by interacting with the Deleuzeian Philosophy and their notions like lines of forces, folding, becoming, smooth space, territory, spatium, this article aims to reveal the relevance of these notions in architectural discourse, as well as discusses the shifting perspectives of design thought and the creative practice, where architectural embodiment becomes a multitude of intensities and an open-ended production. Furthermore, this paper argues the applicability of Deleuzeian thoughts within the architectural design and the notion of space as a “becoming”, by opening up the Fresh Water Pavilion of NOX Architecture into question in terms of unfolding the essences of a transformable-evolvable architectural spatiality.
