The objective of this work is not to suggest complete theories, neither absolute design solutions. It much more takes the path of directing the attention to a way of approaching architectural design via tectonic ‘generators’ and the ar-rangement of these in order to create a continuum of ideas, which gradually raise design knowledge.

Three short theoretical texts are provided by Adrian Carter, Michael U. Hensel and Isak Worre Foged in the effort to direct the attention to tectonic works, ideas and questions. These are followed by a series of student projects, who for a short and intense period worked within a methodology that progressively implements tectonic vantage points.

Descriptions, questions and images are intended to inspire new methodological approaches in architecture that care for the joint integration of performative and formal aspects in architecture.
