Joints is a key for tectonic, tectonic is a key for construction. The idea of architecture design in this exhibition will be different. Comparing to typical design strategies, which means analysis programs need or volume operation, this exhibition starting from smallest component, joint, to face the architectural discourse. How to apply or face the joints of architecture will show the difference attitude we face to our spacial design.

Tectonic is a way to connect components, is a kind of relationship to bind the detail together and show the whole. Tectonic was hard to show irrational way to construct architecture before industrialize, more irrational tectonic applied in relatively small scale, like toy or art pice. Architecturally, Dougong

Irrational Tectonic is not efficiency. Not like rational tectonic pursuing maximum commercial value of space, Irrational Tectonic doesn’t care about the commercial value of space, which is enclosed by itself, it’s more like a representation of architect’s ideal world. No skyscraper allows Irrational Tectonic because it would reduce the space but increase the difficulty of construction. UK Pavilion for Shanghai world expo 2010 is no model of “efficiency” because of its Irrational thick wall, which is constituted by thousands of plastic bars, as a structure. In addition, plastic bars that stored the seed are not efficient, the amount of seeds can be stored in any cargo truck. Moreover, the only space inside the pavilion is far smaller than the residual space between the plastic bars …show more content…
The joints for this exhibition will represent the perspective of top-down creation to button-up creation, which mean is how elite created the joints for their idea, and how people adapt stander industrialize production to create their need. These ten joints for exhibition will show how people apply the joint and build their project, the process of applying joints in both group(elite and normal people) will have totally different attitude. Each joint will be transform to different result from original purpose because of people’s
