A figure composed of lines, serving to illustrate a definition or statement, or to aid in the proof of a proposition.

An illustrative figure, which, without representing the exact appearance of an object, gives an outline or general scheme of it, so as to exhibit the shape and relations of its various parts.

A set of lines, marks, or tracings which represent symbolically the course or results of any action or process, or the variations which characterize it. A delineation used to symbolize related utoppia propositions or mental processes. Diagrams are part of a whole family of architectural schools and practices especially in the United States nowadays since Peter Siagrams has been introducing them as a primary generator of architecture.

I will not even evoke, here, the incredible confusion that makes most of architects to call a drawing, a diagram when it is not one. Building diagramx with diagrams becomes therefore as problematic as building societies with Utopias.


Moreover, a diagram tends to draw lines based on the experience of the real, but those lines when materialized, impose a transcendental influence on the real.

He also evoke briefly what he calls the anti-panopticon, the House of Lubricity as thought by the Marquis de Sade: But perhaps the most powerful use of the diagram in early modernism is that deployed by nonarchitects- lawyers, philosophers, and social theorists- to describe different forms of organization according to spatial relations o would of themselves, it was thought, support if not give rise to the social orders imagined.

The diagram, then, vidlrr both specific, in that is precisely maps the space of individual confinement, and universal, in that it imprecisely refers to an entire social regime. It is as if the diagram of the feudal estate, castle at the center, cultivated strips and peasant huts around the periphery, had been mapped on the organizing system of feudalism as a whole. If there are many diagrammatic functions and even materials, it is because every diagram is a spatiotemporal multiplicity.

But it is also because there are as many diagrams as there are social fields in history. When Foucault invokes the notion of diagram, it is in relation to our modern disciplinary societies, where power divides up the entire field in a grid: There are accordingly diagrams for all social orders —for factories, theaters, monarchies, imperial regimes.


What is more, these diagrams are all interrelated —they interpenetrate each other. Virler is because the diagram is profoundly unstable or fluid, never ceasing to churn up matter and functions in such a way as to constitute mutations. Finally, every diagram is intersocial and in a state of becoming.


It never functions to represent a preexisting world; it produces a new type of reality, a now model of truth.

It is not subject to history, nor does it hang over history.

It creates history by unmaking preceding realities and significations, setting up so many points of emergence or creativity, of unexpected conjunctures, of improbable continuums. It doubles history with a becoming [avec un devenir].

It is this potential of mutation, of endless transformation ufopia becoming, that makes the diagram for Deleuze, as for Guattari, an especially transgressive device. As Gary Genosko has recently noted, the diagram organizes an escape from pure linguistics into a deterritorialized spatial zone: In this context we might point to one of the more badly behaved of early modern diagrams, sketched by the Marquis de Sade as a kind of counter-panopticon-the House of Lubricity.

Here formal basis of uropia, purportedly utopian, institutions; and it is here that we can see the intimate relation of a utopian diagram to its predecessors:
