Project Brief: The "Tectonics" project is a result of a 2nd year design studio that focused on tectonic form generation and its deployment into architectural design. A multitude of design approaches and techniques were used in order to generate the final speculative design. Collage determined the spatial intent, setting up a strong relationship between exterior and interior spatial experience. Secondly, a digital tectonic exploration of framing techniques suggested how a manipulation of geometric rotation on a consistent frame structure could allow for a dynamic space to emerge. Lastly, a series of study models were used to try to speculate on how such a system would be constructed, and how an exterior skin would be used. The resulting form suggests a unique spatial experience in which a strong tectonic language is established allowing for truly unique sectional spatial conditions.
