About the Author

Hélène Frichot is Assistant Professor in Critical Studies in Architecture, KTH School of Architecture and the Built Environment, Stockholm, Sweden. She has co-curated the Architecture+Philosophy public lecture series in Melbourne, Australia ( since 2005. Between 2004-2011 she held an academic position in the School of Architecture and Design, RMIT University. While her first discipline is architecture, she holds a PhD in philosophy from the University of Sydney (2004).

Dr Stephen Loo is Professor of Architecture in the School of Architecture & Design, University of Tasmania, Australia. He has published widely on language, affect and the biophilosophy of the contemporary subject, which includes ethico-aesthetic models for human action, posthumanist ethics and experimental digital thinking. His current research project concerns the connections between ethics, psychoanalysis and the space of the entomological imagination. He has a PhD from the University of Sydney on the ontology of architectural theory through the relations between Heideggerian and Deleuzian thought.


Through Deleuze, the editors argue provocatively, even theory ‘exhaustion’ can produce valuable new engagements with the built-environment. This collection of fascinating essays provides a much-needed overview of architecture and philosophy’s very Deleuzian friendship. The issues tackled are highly relevant to the crises of our times. Required reading – especially for non-Deleuzians!
