Introducing Architectural Tectonics is an exploration of the poetics of
construction. Tectonic theory is an integrative philosophy examining the
relationships formed between design, construction, and space while
creating or experiencing a work of architecture. In this text, author
Chad Schwartz presents an introductory investigation into tectonic
theory, subdividing it into distinct concepts in order to make it
accessible to beginning and advanced students alike. The book centers on
the tectonic analysis of twenty contemporary works of architecture
located in eleven countries including Germany, Italy, United States,
Chile, Japan, Bangladesh, Spain, and Australia and designed by such
notable architects as Tadao Ando, Herzog & de Meuron, Kengo Kuma,
Olson Kundig, and Peter Zumthor. Although similarities do exist between
the projects, their distinctly different characteristics - location and
climate, context, size, program, construction methods - and range of
interpretations of tectonic expression provide the most significant
lessons of the book, helping you to understand tectonic theory.
Written in clear, accessible language, these investigations examine the
poetic creation of architecture, showing you lessons and concepts that
you can integrate into your own work, whether studying in a university
classroom or practicing in a professional office.
