"Tectonics"

Defining tectonics in architecture is a difficult task. However, a working definition encompasses not just the activity of making the materially requisite construction that answers certain needs, but also the activity that raises this construction to an artistic consideration.
In our work we do not strive to produce buildings that use masonry construction in the way it was used in past centuries. Instead, we build in a manner that offers an understandable contemporary construction logic. By drawing upon a number of our built projects I will explore a position that mediates between strategy and detail and offer an understanding of our consciously ambiguous attitude towards tectonic construction.
