The student course “Being Tectonic” is an elective research group that will join the curators of the 2019 Oslo Architecture Triennale to explore the role of architecture in re-establishing our relationships with one another through the physical and finite worlds we create and inhabit.

Humans and objects alike have tectonic relationships with one another governed by the dynamics between them. Our sense of being and belonging with one another the companion to material tectonics governed by the ways we share the spaces we inhabit. The research will be documented in a publication that will form a part of the evidence base for the 2019 Oslo Architecture Triennale. Read more.
