dc.description.abstract“The art of architecture studies not structure in itself, but the effect of structure on the human spirit.” - Geoffrey Scott The essence of architecture is the construction of structures, defining space. Space cannot exist without the assembly of structures and components, coming together in a unique manner that will delineate how said space exists. This relationship can frequently be lost and disjointed, structure becomes a burdened necessity and removes itself from a space’s quality. This project explores how tectonic and stereotomic expression can enrich and define the spatial qualities in architecture. Through exploring the qualities of tectonics and stereotomics, the project develops how these ideas can not only generate spatial qualities, but enrich them. “The best architecture is that whose ornamentation cannot be divorced from the structure” – Viollet-le-Duc. Purposed site: Rendale Place, Eden Terrace, Auckland. A building which facilitates the physical rehabilitation of patients in the orthopaedic branch of physical therapy. The facility will be structured as an out-patient, clinical rehabilitation format with no on-premise surgery.en_NZ
