Fabricating the Pluriversity through the garden

Pluriversity, a space of epistemological and ontological questioning; the discovery of alternative methods of knowledge and cultural subjectivity production, made manifest through the projection of diverse epistemic traditions.

A narrative speculated by parallax, the coming together of various parts in stereoscopic moments of tension, posing a space of question and interference relevant to the current mode of entropy. An Armature within which a series of disaggregated universal knowledge fragments are arranged programmatically as a methodology for future speculations of Trans-, Inter- and Pluri- versal knowledge production.

A process of abstraction and parallax in drawing the University, re-imagines two Heterotopian `Gardens’; the Historic and the Abandoned. Integrated by the parallax drawing machine, to reveal geometric drawings of utopia ideals and their dissonance over time.

The architectural production of knowledge is explored, as cultural entropy, assimilated from various epistemological and ontological practises. The garden typology becomes an armature following configurations of parallax superimposition, revealing a momentary stereoscopic master plan, providing an ideological framework of dissonance, to be filled and ruined, as knowledge is reassigned and re-imagined.

The architecture embodies a new ideological understanding, a complex network of deepened and multiplied interactions, to be imminently ruined and spatially disseminated over time.
