more on the tectonic operation/language

It is important that you develop your concept around a design system.
In one of the references i gave for the project, Digital Fabrications: Architectural and Material Techniques , Author Lisa Iwamoto explores the methods architects use to calibrate digital designs with physical forms. The book is organized according to five types of fabrication techniques: tessellating, sectioning, folding, contouring, and forming, and for each method, different examples:

Digital Weave, University of California, Berkeley / Lisa Iwamoto

In another reference for systematic design, Informal, by Cecil Balmond; the systems derive from structural enquiries in form.

Two other references, Frei Otto. Form Finding: Towards an Architecture of the Minimal and OMA. SMLXL show also good systemic thinking.
