tectonics

The laterst 'tourture' at Kingston School of Architecture is an article we're writing as part of the the tectonics module. After being assigned selected buildings (in my case, Stephen Taylor architects' town houses in London), we've written an article about the project with emphasis on the tectonic composition. The piece of writing is accomponied by a drawing, which should illustrate the most signifigant tectonic composition of the building. I chose to focus on the relationship between the standard brick cavity wall and the bespoke pre-cast concrete and brick slip clad arches.  90% ordinary with 10 % extrordinary.
