Concrete Tectonics II

Kirsten Orr

with Dave Pigram and Nicky Choi


Autumn 2012

This studio explores new ways of casting concrete that minimise the environmental impacts of formwork and maximise the possibilities for producing mass-customised concrete elements better suited to contemporary architectural challenges. This will be an investigation into the ‘tectonic’ potentials of concrete, exploring the complex connections between materials, the technology applied to those materials and the resulting architectural form.
