Advanced tectonics studio march year 1

In this term we based the approach on the observation that in many artefacts, in nature, and in vernacular and designed architecture we can find highly ordered and organized forms, structured over several levels of scale. We tried to articulate principles which generate form, looked at the relationship between exterior form and interior structure, and exploreed how individual form can be based on common order.

We worked with parametric descriptions of form and space, and studied some of the implications like simple description and complex form, single description and a range of forms, variations as combinations of sameness and difference. We treated these studies not just as ideas, but implemented them by writing scripts which generate drawings and models. And we tested the ideas and the implementation with a small housing project.
