Ulrik Stylsvig Madsen Print: The theory builds on the concepts of continental drifts an understanding of the creation of mountains as well as volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. In a tectonic perspective the planet is considered a living organism, through studies of the forces, relocations and movements that over time have occurred in the outer surface of the Earth.
This theory sees the Earth as a living system — and it proposes that all organisms and their inorganic environment on Earth are closely integrated and they form a unified and self-regulating complex system, maintaining the conditions for life on the planet Lovelock, Common for the two theoretical positions is that they both lead to careful and open views on architecture.
To some it may be hard to recognize the correlation between sustainable change for the better and tectonic quality in architecture. Yet one of the most important challenges from a sustainable perspective is Habitat tectonics architecture urbanism increase in energy consumption and the global climate changes - which disrupts the self-regulating system of Gaia.
The political objective is to reduce the consumption of energy, which also leads to restrictions in energy performance of buildings. For this reason, the insulation standards and energy consumption were 3 tightened up in the Danish Building Regulations of Further restrictions will be adopted in and inand by then all new constructions in Denmark are expected to be built according to Passive House standards.
This is primarily done by adding extra layers of insulation. Energy demands will thus have a major impact on future building constructions and the creation of tectonic qualities in architecture. A second challenge is the highly developed industrialization of construction and its impact on products and processes in our built environment.
The historical evolution, which has transformed traditional craftsmanship into industrialized construction with computer-controlled production processes, calls for updated theories and a novel understanding of architectural practice and making of buildings.
A reinterpretation of the concept of tectonics must necessarily respond to this. In order to do so, the present research project is based on explorations of the tectonic aspects of architecture, and the primary task of the project is to explore and discuss the existing theoretical positions in light of current environmental challenges and cultural issues.
These issues will, among others, deal with sustainability resource consumption and our current building culture development of technology and cultural identityand they will be illustrated through a series of related sub-projects.
The overall objective of the research project is to define new strategies for a tectonic sustainable building practice. Research Question The research project is based on the understanding that the current environmental conditions involves a number of limitations as well as potentials that need to be exposed and unfolded as dynamic parameters in architectural practice.

The architectural installation aims to generate high compressive strength as a vehicle to produce spatial environments that are specific to the glass medium.
