The ontological aesthetic of René Magritte describes the world as a hybrid process of the translation and transfer of a universal likeness. Hybridisation as an ultimate and elementary dimension of material and mental relations between beings: a layer of the world which surfaces from remote depths, like the ‘logical layer of the ambiguous, of the equivocal, of polarity’ which mythology knew well and which appears to us today strangely akin to the dynamics of the modern in an aesthetic and anthropological sense which brings the roots of the concept of culture into play. The centrality of the contemporary and also the universality of the category of hybridisation for architecture is projected onto this ontological background. The outline of these theses is traced here: from the epistemic model of drifting currents, the epistemic legitimation of hybridisation, to its architectural reflections, depicted in the conclusion with examples of ‘archetypical currents’.
