The aim of the course is to provide the student with a broad critical understanding of tectonic theory and practice in tectonic design in a high international level. This through the presentation and analysis of relevant design-engineering and architectural theories, methods and models in a historical as well as contemporary context. Finally, this knowledge is combined with advanced acoustic analysis and physical tectonic studies exploring different techniques of analogue/digital experimentation, modelling, prototyping, and crafting.
Must have knowledge of scientific literature/theory, methods and models that are applicable to a tectonic design.
Must have knowledge of advanced room acoustics.
Must have knowledge of material experimentation, modelling, prototyping and relevant crafting methods.
Must have tectonic knowledge of interrelationship between aesthetic experience, form, structure, acoustics, materials and detail
Must be able to analyse and critically reflect on the application and use of aesthetic experience, form, structure, acoustics, materials, and details in a tectonic design.
Must be able to use digital tools for advanced acoustic analysis.
Must be able to design and model tectonic constructions with an interrelationship between aesthetic experience, form, structure, acoustics, materials, and detail.
Must master an understanding of tectonic construction during experimentation, modelling, prototyping, and crafting.
Can create a synthesis of architectural, structural/material and acoustic requirements
Can independently design a small-scale tectonic project on the basis of design-engineering and architectural analyses, sketches, physical models and a critical account of the process evaluating its tectonic quality.
