    Descriptive info: Every milieu is coded, a code being defined by periodic repetition; but each code is in a perpetual state of transcoding or transduction.. Transcoding or transduction is the manner in which one milieu serves as the basis for another.. Architectural Method.. Concerned as we are with the Building itself and not its image or projection, we find the normative Unities of Architectural Representation [plan - mass - surface] problematic as they 'sort' the semantic order of work along their own, instituted but arbitrary lines.. Interposing the drawing as a positive thing [an Ichnographic object] in the process fragmenting our thought.. Which is to say that the architectural is constructed of a material exhibiting a fossilic character, its diagrammatic status letting its inner meaning evaporate in favour of a rather mathematic abstraction.. Mapping Heterologies/Project - IX.. And a sense of suffocation inherent in the systems where power is not embodied in the body, where it rather passes through all.. The place where we collaborate to construct it,  ...   purposes and intentions and for which our things are made, then about itself.. That is to say, when we paint, sculpt or build; we create and confirm an image of the world which was already implicit in the hidden model of our own thinking.. Thus instead of reading of the world made in the direct terms of desires met and intentions satisfied, the world of our artifice can be read symptomatically as an reflection of images and desires either suppressed, hidden or unrecognised.. This backward reading shows not just that the things we make are conditioned by ontological models of what we are prepared to let a thing be, but also the world we make simultaneously and inevitably forms an inscription of (self-imposed) conditions of our subjectivity.. With art we underwrite our subjectivity.. Yet subjectivity is also something we make: and it is made in reciprocal reference to the objects by which we create realms of our life.. ".. John Whiteman..

  • Title: Anand Bhatt, ABA-NET: Composition Of The City
    Descriptive info: Composition Of The City.. In opposition to the understanding of architecture as taxonomia, [or a habit of classifying ~and naming~ things], there exists an organic diagramme of forces: a mechanical-animal amongst the actualities of the architectural profession and the virtual-actualities of thinking about architecture.. On the one hand, the building - a 'decomposition of bending moments or of flexions where numerical division is only the condition of morphogenetic movements'.. On the other, the formation of an organism 'increasingly probable and natural when an infinity of intermediate states is given'.. A multiplicity of connections may be formed in multiple ways, compounded at each stage.. It is here, if ever, that a theory of architecture becomes tenable.. In the principle of connectivity, a mathesis - by itself a.. flexical.. process.. The data-space  ...   the meeting of its arraignments or its folds with outside world(s).. A city that is organised as a system of causes that we must enclose, and enclose within.. A machine that is enfolded within the city, like water in water.. There is also a design incursion into.. Attempts towards new frameworks of urban design and analyses by correlating, in a seamless manner, the primary or the bodily with the 'rational' aspects of city design.. And Benaras is a revelation! It still possesses moments of the first urbanisation.. By the way of proof, imagine a void of the riverbank: of landscape between city and the river where the ghat is now.. Imagine the river and the old wall whose delineation is still visible.. Imagine the two as positives, and not the Ghats..

  • Title: Anand Bhatt, ABA-NET: To Have - Spoken
    Descriptive info: from Composition of the City, Book - IV, Enunciations: or To Have-Spoken.. Analysis of Significances.. Architectural Composition / Engineering [1].. AND BENARAS IS A REVELATION! It still possesses moments of the first urbanisation.. By the way of proof, imagine a void of the riverbank: of pure landscape between the city and the river where the ghat is now.. Imagine the two as positives and not the ghat [as is the habit nowadays].. Imagine the possibilities of such a tension between the city and that which it is fortified against (or, which has yet conquered it).. The relation of the void.. A Strategy.. Urban | Man |; his domain (largely) mathematic is substance.. Note his parallel layers: the river, the sub streets, the pol; note the perpendicular layer: the alley plotted as water would have carved the cliff.. This city has recorded the river into its consciousness by the way of this flowing.. This is similar to the landscape s Organising the village.. Urban space = countryside as a microcosm.. Flowing parallel to the river = being shaped by the river s flow.. Just as they had been flowing in the forests at the beginning; here.. And the city this artificial universe is yet that forest.. That is its genius loci an articulate forest.. Note that streets meet in triads, the leaves of a peepal tree.. Note that the space of a house is no more than a tree, filtering the light; lit as they are from above.. Note that the general compression about the street is just as a path in the forest.. And note the mathematics: dissolution of the axis, group symmetries.. Insert the temple rock a millennia of erosion.. Note the house-tree-temple-rock complimentarily.. And note the inward plunge of the spiral, this spiral is no more then a descent into the cave, the polished sanctum at the heart of granite.. And note the granite spreading in concentric circles.. The layers are eternal ripples in the flow of this river=city.. In a significant detail, one learns to make a wall like layers of sedimentation in the soil.. Mix engineering bricks and pati with stone or concrete in rhythmic alternating layers.. In this way one will have the horizontal layers of soil.. This act of construction in layers is ritualised by Indian architecture.. This notation is but an extension of the aqueous.. Insert into this the vertical rhythm of the column, in timber.. Or steel.. On the ghat one observes grand steel section portals.. Offering large scales, lending the river rhythm in terms other than the stone tree trunks.. Opposed to the organic.. This percussion in harmony with the clam horizontal sheet metal of the waters.. Potentially mixing the over- and the under- structured, the organic with the abstract.. And further, in steel, the builder should have finest of technical capabilities.. Today.. Into this smooth matching of wall-flow and rhythm, this synthesis of organic and abstract we insert wind.. The Second Order when understood in terms of VEDH, the piercing, at once an inevitable violence to the sanctum and an articulation of that violence.. It is an initiation.. The cave is brought to light.. It finds its place in the corporeal.. The element of vedh is autochthonous, independent of the wall-column sequence.. And hence, the winds are held in place with axii describing an analytic gridding of space.. This is the second scale.. Now you have two systems of scaling; the wall with its horizontal rhythm of the gravitational kind; and the gridding of fenestration, ultimately united with the sky.. Growing to the sky and prescribing the scale of the courtyard and the terrace.. That is, the house.. Significant is the relation between a house and the experience in the skies made of invisible walls of pressures, manifest pillars of water over multiple horizons.. Notice the equivalent of the domain of man.. Where walls have risen out of and made of earth, the pillars a product of gravity and the fluid, where the horizon becomes an idea about itself the floor.. Autochthonous substances.. Where in the working of nature the algebraic is introduced to bring control.. In which one finds determinism and intellectual play.. Imagine an efficiency, from the aqueous in the east to the heavenly.. From the heavens to earth.. A metaphoric process parallel to that of nature as perceived by the primitive man, the bushman and the aborigine.. In this may the soul be satisfied.. In the torrents of  ...   state.. The state-of-consuming.. Foucault argued that one of the definitive characteristics of European state formation since the early modern period was the transition from a sovereign state power which operated negatively by setting limits and constraints, to a de-centred disciplinary power which penetrates our soul, bodies and minds; actively transforming them and producing positive effects which turn us all into self-managing citizens.. Foucault's concern was to analyse the techniques and strategies by which this disciplinary power operated, the techniques of the self which turn us, and with which we turn ourselves, into peculiarly modern subjects.. Norbert Elias also insists that we should see European social history in terms of a gradual transformation of personality structure, an intensifying 'constraint towards self-constraint', in which the regulation of the human body, as well as our impulses, passions and desires undergo a 'civilising process' which he explains in terms of the increasing monopolisation of violence which accompanied the process of state formation, the effects of the intensified competition between and within social groups characteristic of a market economy, as well as an accompanying historical tendency towards increasing social interdependency.. VADVANAL, see Annals of the Bhandarakar Archives circa 1910-18.. The first murmuring of the first molecular revolution in 20th Century India.. The murmuring which would evolve in water-fires culminating--or being arrested by--other murmuring.. These, the second, would result in the burning of a police station.. Burning the police, of course, the first manifestation of organised war against the (then prevalent) state.. These would continue, into Revenue Riots in Benaras, the Azad Hind Sena, and the battle of the tennis court.. The lost and forgotten armies raised by which still refuse to go away.. fortunately.. ".. Isn't all that a bit incoherent?.. Well, I don t think so because, once again, the molecular revolution is not something that will constitute a program.. It s something that develops precisely in the direction of ersity, of a multiplicity of perspectives, of creating the conditions for the maximum impetus of processes of singularisation.. It s not a question of creating agreement; on the contrary, the less we agree, the more we create an area, a field of vitality in different branches of this phylum of molecular revolution, and the more we reinforce this area.. It s a completely different logic from the organisational, absorbscent logic that we know in political or union movements.. OK, I persist in thinking that there is indeed a development in the molecular revolution.. But then if we don t want to make of it a vague global level, there are several questions that arise; there are two, I m not going to develop them, I'll simply point them out.. There is a theoretical question and a practical question: 1) The theoretical question is that, in order to account for these correspondences, the "elective affinities" (to use a title from Goethe) between erse, sometimes contradictory, even antagonistic movements, we must forge new analytical instruments, new concepts, because it s not the shared trait that counts there, but rather the transversally, the crossing of abstract machines that constitute a subjectivity and.. that are incarnated, that live in very different regions and domains and, I repeat, that can be contradictory and antagonistic.. That is therefore an entire problematic, an entire analytic, of subjectivity which must be developed in order to understand, to account for, to plot the map of (cartographier) what these molecular revolutions are.. 2) That brings us to the second aspect which is that we cannot be content with these analogies and affinities; we must also try to construct a social practice, to construct new modes of intervention, this time no longer in molecular, but molar relationships, in political and social power relations, in order to avoid watching the systematic, recurring defeat that we knew during the 70s, particularly in Italy with the enormous rise of repression linked to an event, in itself repressive, which was the rise of terrorism.. Through its methods, its violence, and its dogmatism, terrorism gives aid to the State repression which it is fighting.. There is a sort of complicity, there again transversal.. So, in this case, we are no longer only on the theoretical plane, but on the plane of experimentation, of new forms of interactions, of movement construction that respects the ersity, the sensitivities, the particularities of interventions, and that is none the less capable of constituting antagonistic machines of struggle to intervene in power relations.. Félix Guattari, in conversation..

  • Title: Anand Bhatt, ABA-NET: A City Machine
    Descriptive info: A City Machine Text +.. /Design Studio.. /Research Outline.. /Earth Economics-ArchiLab.. If we want to correlate the appearance of writing with certain other characteristics of civilisation, we must look elsewhere.. The one phenomenon which has invariably accompanied it is the formation of cities and empires: the integration into political systems, that is to say, of those individuals into a hierarchy of casts and classes.. Such is, at any rate, the type of development which we find, from Egypt right across to China, at the moment when writing makes its debut; it seems to favour rather the exploitation than enlightenment of mankind.. This exploitation made it possible to assemble work-people by the thousand and set them tasks that taxed them to the limits of their strength.. To this, surely, we must attribute the beginnings of architecture as we know it.. Claude Lèvi-Strauss.. A Lesson in Writing.. In Tristes Tropiques.. Architecture, which is something I confess to, is in other words an act of divination.. I divine space.. And therefore I construct a practice, the practice of architecture which is a divining-machine.. It is a process inhabiting the city: it 'divines the city as it works inside it.. And cities as repositories of this virtuality.. A practice that maps our ex-centricities.. It is an instrument by which one knows, perhaps represents this knowing.. Earth.. A fluid, a globe in space constituted by mutual attractions-repulsion of molecules in the expanse of space.. A product of forces of electricity-magnatism, of gravity, of fire, of coming together of particles, of mass and gravity.. Always mobile.. A City-Machine, computations of the actions of fluids upon fluids the Jamuna river bed in the heart of New Delhi, small bunds canalise and control the velocity of the river flow, siphons are created which are then used as a engraving edge to chisel the soil itself.. The engraved earth is carried as particles suspended within the engraving fluid, only to reach repository areas, where the waters pause and deposit their contents, giving the city a new set of plateux in the heart of the river.. The diurnal flux of the river flow, and monsoon floods 'level' this formation, which is generated time and again.. And a new formation grows over years.. There are no finalities and fixities here, the new urban structure emerges in a process of inscribing and erasing, it appears and lapses over time.. It is all a matter of viscosity, of velocity, of oozing and depositing.. Life exists within this mobility, animals inhabit the earth's flows, on the crusts that form upon the earth's molten core.. In the oceans, the air and what we presume to be terra firma.. Animals.. Animals make cities, we know this animals inhabit this earth, animals must protect their bodies from this earth.. Animals must gather in their multitude, in-mass, they must form in a corpus in order to survive this earth.. They must specialise, they must delegate, they must evolve and originate practices in order to survive.. They must synchronise as a body, within the body of this earth.. But before that, they must enclose.. Animal practices articulate the body of this earth.. By their enclosure they bring about constructs within the body.. Constructs specific to a species, to a genera, to a group.. They constitute networks,  ...   something is purified and held in front of as a mirror or an illusion.. A mirage.. An ex-centricity that must mobilise us.. A City-Machine puts to test this simple statement: Architecture Maps the City, and architecture mimics the city: it is in turn mapped by the city.. It is the instrument par excellence wielded necessarily by the central powers as they come to form the city.. A machine constructed of flows, and an architecture shaped by the energies latent in the flow: by itself.. The place already has the energy and the material for architecture gravity, viscosity, gradient, deposition and forces of nature.. The urban question concerns, then, the mashing of the Homo Sapiens into this machine, the body of earth itself.. Homo Sapiens with his urban motives, separated from the body of the earth: standing upright as a number of modern mythologies would have it.. In any case, separated from the body of earth and wrapped in a shell of articulated space, made symbolic and meaningful.. Shell of language and the possibility of languaging.. Into the shell brought about by the institution of the laws of possession, simple or otherwise, of exchange so on.. Homo Sapiens, animal, trapped in his own economies.. A City Machine exists in the City like Water in water.. It creates series of articulations that come about as organs form within the media, the City as we know it, as its forces constitute a Flexion, a City-Machine is no more than a diagramme of these forces: contained within and shaped by at once shaping its armatures, the city as is seen and experienced.. The resulting condition: we see a ruptured body of the city, if the city was considered a corporate entity, this is a new organism sprouting organs extracted from multiple origins.. Organs existent in a state of constant provocation.. It is by provocation that they propel themselves and change.. Urban systems are generated of this antagonism.. One sees the beginning of a vast locational logic, a dispersed systems of pseudo places.. The bricks of a new city.. The city will then be understood as a vast process of decoding-encoding.. Values embedded into its structure [the proximities, exposures: the whole logic of location in relation to the system of flows in-themselves] are decoded, and buildings actuated representing this decoding.. Buildings formalise the de-coded.. They come into existence as they represent values decoded and thus exploited: brought into light.. Into the domain of exchanges.. The decoding-encoding brings tangible shapes to the form of the city: its structures, signification and other identifiable attributes.. The city, in other words, becomes a product of uprooting.. Of fluid masses of the uprooted, I is placed within the tensions, the provocations.. I must constantly adapt, camouflage oneself [mimesis]: one takes a stand, or takes flight.. People mirror, buildings mirror.. Ephemeral conventions come into existence.. Bereft of motives beyond itself the city represents only itself.. To itself.. Like an animal it constantly endeavours to reproduce itself.. And devouring itself in order to reproduce.. It contains, is contained and even consumes it s own excrement.. At times, we witness the twilight of the city.. It copulates with itself.. It computes and becomes a City-Machine.. It is an ethereal city.. We inhabit it, wraithlike.. We, the dream walkers..

  • Title: Anand Bhatt, ABA-NET: Dynamics Of Meaning
    Descriptive info: Dynamics Of Meaning.. This series serves as a basis for further conceptual writings.. The On Typology/Mapping.. Heterology series of writings and the Solar and Industrial Infrastructures systems draw heavily on the dynamics texts.. It helps.. to stake claims to rigour.. But a rigour contained by delirium.. To think with a tight belly! In working towards arresting the avalanche of reason that binds all (of us) together into a machinic assemblage into State Projects.. It helps to refuse the present, to refuse resources of representation that really belong to the future.. Studies of the multiplicities internal to a single building; taking a building as the limit of analysis.. Heterology series of writings and the Solar and Industrial Infrastructures draw heavily on the dynamics texts.. Architecture inscribes space.. The Dynamics.. texts work with questions inscribing the codes of 'culture'.. That is, knowledges that programme the building as a formal object, and located in areas where bourgeois motivations that feed the Architectural consider their continuance as a Bourgeoisie responsibility.. I enter their interstices, laying bare their intrinsic folly.. dis-abeling their force by describing it.. In the absence of crystalline languages of desire one is still required to act meaningfully.. This involve the risk of being 'captured'  ...   of State.. The result is bountiful.. Look at Stone Age art for example.. One studies multiplicities internal to a single building; taking a building as the limit of analysis.. One studies the typlogical instituted[s] within a given architecture in its Fossilic State: i.. e.. , the inscriptions or marks of the state, internal regulative principles, codes of inner coherence.. The Dynamics studies assume the core inscription of architecture to be hieroglyphic marks of the "I".. It is clearly understood that the meaning of any given work of architecture is shared equally by its conditions of Being (i.. , the Fossilic) and the techniques of its making.. Simultaneous to writing; it becomes necessary to evolve techniques of drawing (that is, dissecting and representing) architectural artefacts.. These techniques are evolved through an appraisal of the meanings contained within the techniques (of making) the building.. There are seven Dynamics of Meaning texts as of now.. on Le Corbusier's.. Villa Savoye.. on Gandhi's houses at Sabarmati and Sewagram Verdha.. on the Hawa Mahal in Jaipur, and studying Classical Hindu construction/engineering.. on the Meenakshi-Sundereshvar temple at.. on Terragni's Danteum.. on the Theatre building - or the place of performance -..

  • Title: Anand Bhatt, ABA-NET: Villa Savoye
    Descriptive info: In the following I inspect the semantics of the Villa Savoye by Le Corbusier in order to identify the structures of architectural representation.. I begin with analysis of architectural representation in a simple, mutually antagonistic couple: Modernity and its normative "other", historicity.. As the analysis progresses, it becomes evident that the attractions, and not so much the contradistinctions amongst the two construct the representation.. As the cracks and fissures in Le Corbusier's synthesis are observed, a third set of architectural motifs emerges as the gross structural constituents (equivalent of the linguistic sign) of architectural representation.. Dynamics of Meaning within an Architectural Form: Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye.. It is possible to understand buildings as constantly signifying fields and the city as a resultant agglomeration of such.. This, I think, results in a discourse and this discourse must possess a structured system of representation.. In its materiality, it is also a means of combining and preserving perceptions arising from within  ...   [which results in the naming of the elements of this order] becomes capable of effecting a critique of conventional unities of architectural representation.. As I consider architecture as construed of a crypto-grammatical (i.. , syntactic) representation, it becomes evident that in attempting to work upon architectural 'syntax', typology is a second order system.. And that analysis of typology shares some traits with the study of myth: mythology.. part - 1: The Writing.. /map.. ».. /table of contents.. /mode of the axonometric.. /elements of house-ness.. /dom-ino as a sign.. part - 2: Drawings.. /the plan..

  • Title: Anand Bhatt, ABA-NET: Madurai
    Descriptive info: Multiple articulations involve two (or more) simultaneous strictures.. In cases where both strictures are of equal degree, these are referred to as double articulations.. More commonly, one stricture is more open than the other.. In these cases the one with the greater constriction is said to be the primary articulation and the one with the more open constriction is referred to as a secondary articulation.. Note that "secondary" in degree of stricture does not mean "secondary" in importance or linguistic significance.. Secondary articulations are often lexically distinctive, just as much as primary articulations.. A broad consensus reigns today: in its zeal to create a new colonial society.. A society retrieved from the blindness within the project of modernity.. Originating in processes lawfully re-formatting 'us' into someone else's project.. This goes, for example, by the name of "globalization" or "reform".. One is trapped into stories written about us, into systems already thought through.. Embodied in the network knowledges which already fix the limits of imaginibility.. From this context one looks at the Technology of the Temple, the power it constitited as it came to bestow | identities | upon all it enfolded.. For the simple voices and violence which rule our streets.. Now.. And these violences are not transformed, nor 'cured' into newer-'polite' formations.. But Retained, rather, as desiring-formations.. This has to do with identity, be it of | Man |, or machine; or even technologies which came to in the fore in the decades around the middle of the last century.. And if at all, I am an automaton still guided by these ill-comprehended technologies; it is in response to the desires connoted by that identity.. An identity which will not be taken for granted, by as that which still does not represent itself within the city.. The function and the field of the Ocular [the visible or the scopic] emerges as a special political compulsion for the architect in here it is the urge towards orientation and figuration..

  • Title: Anand Bhatt, ABA-NET: On Typology-Mapping Heterologies
    Descriptive info: Written as a dynamic couple, the two elements conjoined in a force-field of otherness: describing a mutual antagonism.. Constituting the possibility of imaging new building-producing organisations, and techniques.. The lawful , or mathesis of Typology being interfered to by the fundamental system of otherness.. This is an ex-centric system, closed and by the virtue of its internal conflict, self-transforming.. On Typology..

Or, constructions "erected like dikes".. Mapping Heterologies.. This study plots the anomalies and deviations from the pure datum of the textualised classical in some examples of South Asian architecture..
