Ulrik Stylsvig Madsen Print: The theory builds on the concepts of continental drifts an understanding of the creation of mountains as well as volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. In a tectonic perspective the planet is considered a living organism, through studies of the forces, relocations and movements that over time have occurred in the outer surface of the Earth.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Massachusetts Institute of Technology Date Issued: Tectonics in architecture is defined as "the science or art of construction, both in relation to use and artistic design. The topic is, in part, a reaction to some contemporary trends in architecture.
Part one discusses Architecture tectonics current trends perceived to be negative: Part two discusses the external references and internal references of buildings. These references are developed in two ways: The former is concerned with the general circumstances of a building, physical, social, political, economicor in Heidegger's terms, the way in which it "gathers the fourfold," and the latter is concerned with the intrinsic properties of a building.
The two are completely interdependent, however, this thesis is primarily concerned with a building's inner-consciousness. Part three defines tectonics first by discussing its relation with meta-physics; second by tracing an abbreviated lineage of nineteenth century German practitioners and theorists; third by describing different kinds of tectonic expression and finally by outlining only a few "subjects" of tectonic architecture.
These are intended to give concrete examples of some of the issues and subjects discussed previously in the thesis. Tectonics is primarily concerned with the making of architecture in a modem world.
Its value is seen as being a partial strategy for an architecture rooted in time and place, as well as an architecture of "depth.Transcript of Architectural Tectonics.
