One of the aims of this article is to examine how architectural thought can be placed into closer dialogue with Anthropocenic thought. It may be a broader collective task, but there is a need to create approaches and frameworks that link different fields, figures, ideas, and methods. Here I focus on some of the concepts and methods put forward by political philosopher and activist Paolo Virno and media theorist and educator McKenzie Wark. I interpret their thought in relation to architects and theorists Aldo Rossi and Diana Agrest towards an architectural theory for the Anthropocene.
