Abstract The purpose of the paper is to recover the meaning of contemporary architecture through Heidegger's thoughts for “Be” and “Being”. The paper suggests a way to theorize philosophy of architecture. It is to look at the intersection of Heidegger's thought and RCR Archquitects’ from an ontological perspective. “Be” and “Being” can be considered as identity and possibility of the world and contiguity of the earth, respectively. From the architectural thought of the RCR Arquitectes we can explore this identity, possibility and contiguity. They want their architecture to have “Rootedness” and “Wing” at the same time. “Rootedness” is possible by perception of “Be”, and “Wing” is the transformation of “Being” into a form itself. In these processes, another thought for Heidegger can be theorized through “Rest” and “Motion”. This kind of architectural exploration of Heidegger's fundamental ontology can be an answer for the loss of meaning in architecture in contemporary life.
