I’m excited to announce a competition that I have been planning for quite some time with the Center for American Architecture and Design at UTSOA.

This is a call for works of art or design that (i) might fairly be called ‘objects’ by the nascent philosophies of Speculative Realism and Object Oriented Ontology, and that (ii) will throw light on architecture as a peculiar set of objects, phenomena, ideas, relations, connections, skills, materials, obligations, and operations.

Jury includes: Craig Dykers, Graham Harman, Ian Bogost, Tim Morton, Levi P. Bryant, Jorge Otero-Pailos, Albena Yaneva, Michael Benedikt, Kory Bieg and more to be announced.
