Description/Abstract

Tectonics is the project of following rules. It is the process of accepting what is given to us and making the best of it. We, as architects, assemble these predetermined components without question, albeit with potentially great results. By understanding the materials, processes, design, and jigging of building components, the limitations of actualizing designs can be eroded, challenging the relationship between designer, builder, and user.
