The discipline boundary of architecture has been gradually growing, but the essence of architecture is still making space and object. And one measure of a good architecture is whether the building can make people enter a discourse with themselves and their world. And the method is how to make the object produce continuous meaning in the interaction with people. In the interaction between human and object, we give meaning to the object. From the perspective of phenomenology, the object becomes a thing. In order to keep architecture staying active, we need to give new meaning to object continuously, keep object as a thing. In this thesis, my research object is the column, because column is one of the basic element for architecture, to make the research more targeted. This paper is divided into three parts: the first part is about thing theory, it includes thing theory in critical theory and architecture; the second part is about how can column be a thing, this part mainly introduces the design operations to make column be a thing; the last part is apply the study in a project, to see how it works.
