Abstract:

In this book, ideas, design principles and practices that relate to tectonics in architecture are explored, and a series of themes are discussed in relation to various concepts of ecology. Ecology is,in this case, defined in its widest sense, which includes the cycling of resources, systems of social organisation and the environmental context. Tectonics – a concept with a long tradition in architecture and architectural theory – is comparable to ecology. It relates to the design and assembly of structural elements, and implies a holistic approach to materials, to construction technology and to the design of structures. It is more than merely an instrumental strategy: it extends into the poetic, which elevates it to the status of a cultural practice.This book is part of a research project conducted by leading academics associated with the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture, the Aarhus School of Architecture and the Danish Building Research Institute. With a collection of 13 essays by academic experts and practicing architects the book provides the first comprehensive representation of contemporary tectonic thought and practices in architecture.
