On Tectonic Terms

Edited by: Isak Worre Foged

The objective of this work is not to suggest complete theories, nor absolute design solutions. It directs attention to a way of approaching architectural design via tectonic 'generators' and the arrangement of these in order to create a continuum of ideas, which gradually raise design knowledge. Three short theoretical texts are provided in the effort to focus on tectonic works, ideas, and questions. These are followed by a series of projects by students, who, for a short and intense period, worked within a methodology that progressively implements tectonic vantage points. Descriptions, questions, and images are intended to inspire new methodological approaches in architecture that support the integration of performative and formal aspects in architecture.
