Concrete Tectonics II

Edited by Kirsten Orr, Natalie Nicholas and Jessica Tringali
978 0 9872369 8 2

The Concrete Tectonics Studio 2012 was a research based design studio of sixteen Master of Architecture students led by Associate Professor Kirsten Orr, at the University of Technology, Sydney. The studio traversed the gap between analogue and digital spheres of architectural research, pursuing innovation in precast concrete through material experimentation and parametric design. This book catalogues the Concrete Tectonics Studio processes into a series of scaled studies, enabling a detailed synthesis of the minute details of the individual components with the complexities of realising the whole.
