Tectonic & Iteration
The project joint areas of investigation are Tectonics –understood as architecture’s material anatomy and its effects and performance largely consisting of technical, technological and cultural environmental dimensions. It focuses predominantly on the building envelope –particularly on its forms of articulation and means of producing apertures. The articulation
of architecture’s outermost surface will be understood through the logics of panelization, material and pattern. Apertures will be understood through the logics of openings or fenestration, glazing, and enclosure. These combined constitute the economies and aesthetics of how architecture produces interior/exterior relations and affective qualities; embodies
a crucial environmental role; etc.
