Anonymous Monsters is a chthonic zenoarchaeology that constructs new models of thinking through construction and physical construction with the earth.

The anonymous monster could be the alternate contracting – constructing model and ideas that you consider valuable and inherently fundamental for an architecture before the architecture – the scaffolding of thought and the scaffolding of buildings. This scaffolding could become the anonymous support structure that enables but also underpins the monster under construction.

Design Ecologies 5.1: Anonymous Monsters presents an architecture where existing architectural models will be abolished by creating something more dynamic, at first, almost unseen within the old system, but which will break through, reshaping the built environment around new values and behaviours. Ecological design replacement towards ecological forensics will be accelerated by external shocks and shaped by the emergence of a new kind of human being. This is possible because of three major changes design technologies has brought about in the use and application of digital tools in architecture, a shift away from representation and towards documentation and the consequences of new spatial terrains yet to be explored.
