My work covers tectonics of structural systems and definition of structural limitations in architectural design. I bring the structural engineering and architectural view points together in order to present how architects play with structural limits during design. Some architects transform these limits in an architectural way and some do not follow these limits as long as the related building code allows such an action. I also enjoy making sketches about tectonic qualities of structural systems.
