Towards an ecology of tectonics

When: 01 Nov
9.15-4.30

Location: Kunstakademiets Arkitektskole, Copenhagen

The symposium aims to form a discussion about an ecology of tectonics as a way of approaching the challenges that contemporary building practice is facing.

Todays building industry is facing a major transformation into even more industrialised building processes. Can we meet these challenges by focusing on the tectonic potentials embedded in present building principles, and by doing this, can we then maintain making as the very core of architectural practice. Fredrik Nilsson, Head of Research and Development at White Arkitekter and Professor of Architectural Theory at Chalmers University of Technology is one of the international theoreticians within the field who are invited to reflect upon different aspects of the topic.
