RESEARCH QUESTION: How can a tectonic investigation of social connections enrich a building's design and building? This project is an exploration of tectonic detailing. It aims to get an understanding of how tectonic detailing can be used to reflect social interactions between groups of people. The project site is located at Pakiri approximately an hour's drive north of Auckland. There is an existing horse facility. The project programme aims to design a facility for dressage (teaching, practicing and exhibiting) and to also develop a branch for equine-assisted psychotherapy.
