Untitled (The Things Around Us) presents a heterogenous series of environments, conditions, objects, and figures that have agency in RUF’s and 51N4E’s approaches to design. Conceived as a Latourian catalogue of things, the video assembly presents the expanded ecology in which the architects work and draws focus away from design or buildings as such. A dynamic panorama of natural and social forces across territories instead foregrounds context. The narrative unfolds as an aggregation of voices with which the architects engage in dialogue.
