Project Details


The studio is organised as an intensive ‘laboratory’ on aesthetical, theoretical, scientific and practical issues defining tectonics as a discourse within architecture. Teachings in tectonic terminology, its historical outline and key people within this approach are illustrated and discussed, while hands-on intensive workshops sees to link from theoretical descriptions, via taught methods to applied tectonic representations in built models and drawings. The design progression leads from systemic investigations to the formation of a pedestrian bridge.

The tectonic approach within the studio is based upon the key terms material, joint, assembly, system, geometry, addition and formation.
