for our stooopid readers in London that cant even be bothered to visit RIBA’s website (+) (architecture DOT com, omg),
some students that actually did not make it to the FG ”Epic Fails” (+) section of the Presidents Medals will be showing and explaining their work.
Why attend this event?
1. You will meet someone from Australia
2. You can bring along your empty moleskin and pepool will not laugh
3. Since you are all groupies of Factory.Fifteen, Mr.Tavares spends most of his mornings reading & replying your emails. Go ahead and ask him your questions so that he and his crew get more free time to take over the world.
4. If you are hot: the Factory is looking for a new secretary. Maybe you get to be the lucky stoopid blonde to answer their phones (girls only as far as i know)
5. Basmah will be there
6. Each visitor gets to play with her acoustic prototype (2 rounds each)
7. THE FG TEAM will be around ^^
We just got an email that the AA FASHION will be joining again the Paris lifestyle in FALL 2018. They will be back with ultra radical briefs since the scale of the potential projects will be much smaller. Well known scale surfers, they are, stoopid fashion for little ugly kids will be the main design variable for the upcoming workshop. (more photos will be soon uploaded)
Factory Fifteen made it to the Channel 4 homepage.
To be honest, we dont really care but since it is super recent (a few minutes ago) why not publish it?
We give knowledge and wisdom for free today straight from the FG library.
“The Physiology and Phenomenology of Action“
“Why use the word, givenness? The justification of this term givenness (outside its usage by Husserl) is that it now becomes necessary to situate ourselves at a level that not only interests the physiologist but also the physicist and even the anthropologist, the level of a general (non – specific) ontology devoted to “whatever is”. Givenness has to do with the way in which an object that exists in and for itself comes to be manifest for someone who gets to know it. Givenness also has to do with the organized totality of those constitutive operations thanks to which a subject is capable of giving itself an object. This terminology was introduced to resist the fixational temptations associated with the term sense data, which signifies that the object is simply what is there. However, a configuration in a visual field is not really data, far from it. For what are required so that is should exist are visual activities, the activity of gazing in order that some appearing thing acquire a stable form. So the word data is the end result of a process that has been brutally reified. The term givenness is more interesting on account of its progressive character, this active disbursing of sense data across a certain duration in the life of the subject, all of which is evoked by this nominalization of an action word (to give; givenness). Something is given on the basis of nothing or, more exactly, on the basis of a sort of pre-phenomenal retention of what is not yet manifest. So givenness refers us back to an altogether more primary level. It is a matter of appreciating that objects, is no far as they support properties, even sense data, are not there from the first. They have to be elaborated. Terms like elaborate, constitute, construct, and attribute designate this dynamic interaction between the subject and its world, a world which, for agents, is before all else their field of practical interaction. So these terms imply the same dynamic vocabulary.
Givenness saves us from a temptation inherent in transcendentalism: its excessive idealism. We are not talking about attributing to the subject the ability to create, from the ground up, an object that never existed before. What the subject contributes to the object is its sense. It has a sense for him, a sense that only emerges in relation to him, and this no matter what the nature of the object endowed with such a sense. Because any such object is the product of a living organism that has its habits, desires, needs, filters and hypotheses on the world in which it lives, and so attributes properties a priori or at least seeks to find such properties in the external world.”
we just got back in paris and realized that THE BIG will hit our city with his Diagram-Architecture. BORING!
It is clear that he got influenced by our negotiation techniques (yes those we used to obtain Presidents Medals winners from Mr.Richardsson)
As a result he will realize one of the most radical and potentially influential buildings of the century. Its a pure cube with one node point moved to the left WITHOUT pressing “Shift” (that was a key point for the design process)
. Up Up for THE BIG a.k.a I Make Bitches Wet (+)
we dont really care since tonight will be hitting once again all the hot spots of Paris
and after 03:00 our loft office will be looking a bit like that:
