Abstrakt

The introduction maps the most important theories and cultural practices in tectonics of architecture. In an overall perspective, it describes the aim of the book that is to set
the grounds for discussions about tectonic strategies as ways to approach the existing challenges in contemporary building practice, the point of departure being an ecological approach to the creation of architecture. Ecology is here defined in its widest sense, which besides ecological systems found in nature includes environmental dimensions, the life cycle of resources, social organisation, and the
longevity of the contextual qualities of design.
