Set against contemporary versions of a dark ecology, the chapter shows the inherent luminism of Guattari’s ecosophy, which it develops from within the complementarity of the differently luminous planes of immanence and of consistency. Drawing on Guattari’s ecologization of the notion of the abstract machine, the chapter turns to architecture as a testing site of the alignment of given world and giving creatures. A reading of Guattari’s writings on architecture shows that a schizoecological architecture should be, like ecology itself, both intensely impersonal and intensely personal, both intensely abstract and concrete. After tracing the conceptual architectures of the La Borde clinic, it develops, against recent theories of an all-encompassing and all-pervading capitalism, the theory of a time- and site-specific capitalism, and, set against against Lacanian paychoanalysis, of a time- and site-specific unconscious. The chapter concludes with a reading of The Three Ecologies and Chaosmosis in the light of Schizoanalytic Cartographies.
